MIDDLE TOWNSHIP — The removal of three traffic lights on the Garden State Parkway in Cape May Court House will lead to the closing of a section of the highway Sept. 17, township police said.

From 10 p.m. Sept. 17 to 5 a.m. Sept. 18, southbound traffic will be detoured at Avalon Boulevard (Exit 13) onto Route 9 to Stone Harbor Boulevard (Exit 10) as the highway is closed for utility work.

Northbound traffic will be able to continue, but in a single lane and with a detour onto Moore Road and then back onto the parkway northbound at a new entrance ramp.

If there is inclement weather on Sept. 17, the closing will be Sept. 18 during the same nighttime hours.
