Park-and-ride lot at Gandolfini service area on Parkway to close for reconstruction

Mar 28 2024

The park-and-ride lot at the James Gandolfini Service Area on the Garden State Parkway will be closed for repairs for approximately four weeks starting on April 1st.

Only construction and emergency services vehicles will be able to access the service area during the parking lot reconstruction.

The Rockland Coach commuter bus service, which normally operates out of the service area, will be temporarily relocated to the commuter parking area located off Exit 14 of the New York State Thruway in Clarkstown, Rockland County, New York.

The main building and fuel facilities at the Gandolfini service area have been closed since December for a major renovation project. There have been no food, fuel, or restrooms available at the location since that time, but the park-and-ride lot has remained open until now.

When the parking lot reconstruction is complete, the park-and-ride lot will reopen, but the building and fuel facilities will remain closed until those renovations are complete late this spring.
