Parkway Flats Blamed on Piece of Metal in Road

A piece of metal laying in the northbound lanes of the Garden State Parkway in Ocean County is to blame for 15 cars getting flat tires on Monday morning.

The cars got flats around milepost 85 just north of the Toms River tolls where a temporary bridge is in place over Old Freehold Road  according to the Asbury Park Press.  New Jersey Turnpike spokesman Tom Feeney tells the Star-Ledger that “a metal piece from a bridge joint came loose and was sticking up far enough to puncture the tires of some vehicles that drove over top of it.”

Once the contractor arrived Feeney was able to quickly correct the problem

Motorists who suffered flats can request a notice of claim form from the turnpike authority by calling 732-750-5300, extension 8714.
