VIDEO: Garden State Parkway Interchanges to Memorialize Men Killed in Cape May County


CAPE MAY — The deaths of two men in Cape May County are set to be honored as a bill proposed in their memory passes through the State Legislature in Trenton.
The bill designates the Crest Haven Road interchange on the Garden State Parkway in memory of Melvin Loftus and designates the Stone Harbor Boulevard interchange in honor of Christopher Meyer.
Both men lost their lives in car accidents at traffic lights on the highway.
Work to remove those traffic lights is nearly complete following years of complaints and tragic accidents.
Meyer's father, Erik, has been an advocate for the removal of the lights at those intersections since his 17- year-old son's death in 2004.
The bill, sponsored by First District Senator Jeff Van Drew and Assemblyman Robert Andrzejczak, now heads to Governor Chris Christie for approval.
