By the end of this fall, exact change toll lanes on the Garden State Parkway will be a thing of the past.

Work will begin on the Garden State Parkway on September 24th to remove the exact change baskets, and replaced with Full Service or E-ZPass Only Lanes

According to the New Jersey Turnpike Authority:

The coin machines in the exact change lanes are nearing the end of their life expectancy and becoming exceedingly difficult and expensive to maintain or fix

 

Here is the schedule of when the exact toll lanes will be replaced

  • Week 1: Pascack Valley and Cape May
  • Week 2: Bergen and Great Egg
  • Week 3: Essex and New Gretna
  • Week 4: Union and Barnegat
  • Week 5: Toms River and Raritan
  • Week 6: Asbury Park
