On the first day back to school and work following Labor Day, northbound traffic was stalled on the Garden State Parkway, in the vicinity of Holmdel, around 8:30 a.m. Delays went back for miles.

The state’s real-time traffic reporting agency, 511nj.org, said there was an accident with injuries, as well as a vehicle fire. Both occurred in the Express lanes, north of Exit 114

As of 10:20 a.m., authorities estimated that the the 29-mile trip from Exit 98, Belmar, to the Raritan Toll Plaza in Woodbridge via the express lanes would take 1 hour and 13 minutes.
