Beginning Monday, August 5, the repairs will take place in the evening and during the overnight hours and will alternate between the west and eastbound lanes.

Additional repairs include the resurfacing of the westbound upper level roadway, upgrade and rehabilitation of roadway drainage system, and rehabilitation of the finger joints.

  • Basil farm ready to switch to marijuana

    Basil farm ready to switch to marijuana

    Friday, April 18 2014 4:11 PM EDT2014-04-18 20:11:50 GMT
    Basil plants grow on a New Jersey farm, but the facility could be turned into a five-acre medical marijuana greenhouse with only 48 hours' notice. The hoses from the state-of-the-art Dutch hydroponic system are watering flowers now, but with a few minor adjustments could just as easily grow marijuana plants for medicinal cannabis. The only reason it's not happening now is because the company is publicly traded and subject to federal law.
