Officials have closed much of the Garden State Parkway because of flooding.

The parkway is to be closed south of Exit 129, where the road meets the New Jersey Turnpike in Woodbridge as of 4 p.m.

The New Jersey Turnpike Authority has already closed the stretch of the Parkway from Exit 63 in Stafford Township to its southern terminus in Cape May.

Meanwhile, on the New Jersey Turnpike, the speed limit has been reduced to 45 mph in both directions between the Delaware Memorial Bridge and Interchange 12 in Carteret. Motorcycles and car-pulled trailers have been banned on the full-length of the Turnpike.

Drivers should expect other significant closures and travel restrictions as the storm progresses.
