Ocean Township NJ
Asbury Park Toll Plaza, Garden State Parkway
South of Raritan River, the Parkway's characteristic yellow shoulders were sand quarried from pits located near the highway, probably including the area on the left. This section was notorious for massive northbound traffic jams on late summer Sunday afternoons when there were only two or three lanes, still a gamble on a hot weekend. The highway has been so widened that the "park" center median dividing north & south is gone.
