If you’re planning on parking near tonight where Woodbridge will be holding its , the sooner you get there, the better.
Or be prepared to walk.
The 39-acre manmade peninsula is a county park located in Sewaren. The park is only reachable by an access road at the intersection of Cliff Road and Debra Place it shares with the PSE&G cogeneration plant.
There is limited parking inside the park, and part of that near the pavilion at the end of the peninsula won’t be available at the fireworks celebration tonight.
The park will be open to the public starting at 4 pm today.
According to town spokesman John Hagerty, 7,000 people attended last year’s Independence Day event. The fireworks won’t start until dusk, and what parking there is will probably be full long before the first fireworks hit the night sky.
In other words, if you don’t want to walk far, get there early!
But there are parking alternatives outside Williams Park. While there won’t be any parking allowed on either side of the access road, there will be street parking available, as well as parking in nearby lots on Cliff Road by the Sewaren Marina and township dog park.
Police said that parking on side streets will be allowed. It’s problematic about whether parking will be permitted on West Ave., the street that runs parallel to Cliff Road.
Auxiliary police officers, Community Emergency Reponse Team (CERT), and the Woodbridge Police will be handling the massive traffic detail.
When the fireworks end, both lanes of the access road will turned into one way exits to accommodate the exodus getting out of the park.
