MIDDLE TOWNSHIP, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) – The Garden State Parkway will soon be completely free of traffic lights.

A construction project beginning Monday will remove the three traffic lights on the Parkway, all of which are located in Cape May County.

The $110 million New Jersey Turnpike Authority project will also include building bridges to carry Parkway traffic over local streets at Interchanges 9, 10 and 11.

Turnpike Authority officials hope the construction project will reduced traffic along that stretch of the 172-mile Parkway, and improve traffic safety in the area.
