The Garden State Parkway was closed for a time in one of its busiest spots on Tuesday afternoon.

Turnpike Authority spokesman Thomas Feeney said a wire fell onto the highway forcing the closure of the highway between Route 1 and the New Jersey Turnpike in both directions in Woodbridge.  All lanes were reopened around 1:10 p.m.

The closure quickly created delays on the ramps to the Parkway and a multi mile delay.
