The Grover Cleveland Service Plaza, located in the Woodbridge Township for northbound drivers on the New Jersey Turnpike, will not be able to offer food service to travelers until further notice. The New Jersey Turnpike Authority announced the food service suspension Monday afternoon, January 7, but did not provide an immediate explanation.
The Thomas Edison Service Plaza, which serves the southbound traffic, is still providing food services at this time.

The Indiana Toll Road has released its construction schedule for the week of January 7th through the 13th, with a slew of un-started projects on the list. Most construction matters on the current weekly list are simple survey work and exit lane restrictions. These will typically impact truckers with wider loads.
However, some crack sealing and repair will lead to lane closures, particularly in the westbound lanes between mile markers 90 to 100, and again from mile markers 120 to 130. Some eastbound crack repair is likely as well. Most closures and lane restrictions are set to happen between 2:00 PM and 5:00 PM.
Truckers and bus drivers must now use the left lane through the twin tunnels on the Pennsylvania Turnpike, until further notice. The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission issued it’s alert January 2, 2013 in which it restricted commercial traffic to the left lanes between mile markers 195 and 202. The restriction currently affects only the eastbound travel lanes.
The lane restrictions will remain in effect indefinitely; there is no word from PennDOT or the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission of whether the westbound lanes may also be affected.
The right lane of travel will remain open for regular cars and pick-up trucks, as well as other non-commercial traffic traveling through the tunnels. This restriction is near the Blue Mountain Exit of the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
Drivers are asked to carefully monitor highway radio at 1640 AM. Additional updates are being sent to news media, including TurnpikeInfo.com, regarding these lane restrictions.
Drivers will be affected by a milling and resurfacing project on Florida’s Turnpike, which got underway January 3, 2013 in Palm Beach County. The project is expected to take approximately six months to complete and will affect everyone driving both northbound and southbound on the turnpike.
The resurfacing project is happening north of the Okeechobee Boulevard exit, and will impact drivers between mile marker 102 and 104. Florida’s Department of Transportation has notified news media the project will result in lane closures during night hours, usually between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m., Sundays through Thursdays, for the duration of the project.
The project will involve resurfacing, guard-rail replacement, erosion control development, desilting of drainage pipes and bridge deck repairs.
