TRAFFIC: The Slow Summer Snarls Near Long Branch, Monmouth Beaches

Every summer weekend, the traffic heading to, or from, Long Branch and other Monmouth County beaches is typically is bumper-to-bumper and moving at a crawl between the Garden State Parkway and the beaches.

Typically, you should anticipate up to a half hour, or more, to travel between the area and the Garden State Parkway.

I think you have it wrong. It's not just the weekends that traffic is a nightmare on Route 36 it's every day. There is basically only one way in and one way out to the Parkway. I laugh at the blue government sign showing you how to escape in case of a disaster!! I guess none of us would make it based on the traffic heading out of town. Towns have made this into a disaster as they never planned to widen roads, since 1968 when I moved.

Allowing beachgoers (especially at beach clubs) to cross at will tied up traffic on Rt. 36 this last weekend and it will be at least as bad during the Summer. Parking lot attendants at the clubs should allow traffic to keep moving, and cross pedestrians in groups instead of a steady stream, walking across the road without looking and expecting traffic to stop for them.
