Traffic Update: EZ PASS WAIVER and Holland Tunnel Region 02 Watch
***NOTICE FOR HURRICANE SANDY RELIEF COMPANIES***
1. Any outside company that is assisting New Jersey in our Hurricane Sandy relief effort and travels the New Jersey Turnpike or Garden State Parkway will not be charged a toll. Such companies must be in clearly marked company vehicles (i.e. electric utility trucks, tree or debris clearing trucks and equipment, Red Cross, Military Convoy, etc.) and are instructed to use manned toll booths whenever possible. Drivers should identify themselves as part of the relief effort and will be given free passage. Should drivers inadvertently pass through a dedicated EZ-Pass lane, an automatic violation will be generated by our toll system. Once a violation notice is received (this can take 30-60 days), a company representative should contact The New Jersey Turnpike Authority at (732) 750-5300 X 8750 with information from the violation notice available. At that time, any tolls and fines will be waived.
2. Port Authority of NY/NJ Holland Tunnel will have ONE LANE BUS OPERATIONS ONLY starting tomorrow, Friday, November 2, 2012, as follows:
* 5:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., Mondays thru Fridays, 1 lane of the south tunnel will operate for BUSES ONLY, Eastbound to NYC.
