Ocean Parkway

Westbound Views

The Ocean Parkway runs west as a four-lane divided highway. The exits along this stretch are few and far between. There are no overpasses. Instead, a series of turnarounds make it possible for vehicles travelling in one direction to access the exits on the other side of the parkway.
