Garden State Parkway Cutting Trees to Widen Rd.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -

More trees will be removed along the Garden State Parkway as part of a widening project to reduce congestion, but turnpike officials say it will affect a limited area, The Press of Atlantic City reported. The $900 million project between Ocean County and Atlantic County angered some residents a few years ago, when numerous oak, maple, cedar and pine trees were removed. But 250 acres were trimmed then, while the current phase involves only 3.9 acres.
