The Garden State Parkway just got wider, just in time the holiday weekend.

A new third lane and shoulder are now open, stretching 17 miles in both directions between Toms River and Long Beach Island.

The $225 million widening project was nearly two years in the making.

It should go a long way towards easing beach traffic congestion.
