Turn on the light

Submitted.
Why is the township dragging its feet and not activating the traffic signal at the intersection of Pine street and Avenue of the States. There have been numerous accidents at that corner, it is also the entrance to Pine River village were many seniors have it very hard driving in and out. Ironically the township recently installed and  activated 3 traffic signals near the Woods development  on Cedarbridge avenue,  by Quick check and plan another one at the Vine street intersection. Does money have more preference than lives C'V? how many accidents c'v will it take to turn on the light.?

  1. The light effects the traffic flow from Somerset walk

  2. At this point, there is not enough traffic on Ave Of the States to offset the detriment it would do to traffic flow on Pine. The only reason it was put up was because the grant money for it would've expired. Contrary to what you believe there have not been many accidents there. Additionally the seniors know to enter/exit their development from the other streets if they wish to have a safer driving experience.

    1. Are you kidding "not enough traffic" try making a right or left turn from Ave of the states onto pine it is impossible. Your logic makes no sense, it does not seem that the township cares about traffic flow on Cederbridge when it installed 3 lights and putting in a 4th. Obviously when it comes to line pockets and satisfy developers there is another set of rules.

    2. Don't give me this traffic flow non sense. Pine street is a disaster there is no traffic flow. You wait 15 minutes to get from new Hampshire to rt 9. Adding a light for 2 minutes so cars can go through will not affect the traffic flow, it may even make it better. But some powerful have no zitsfleish to sit by a light they rather inconvenience motorists and put them in danger.

  3. While we're on the topic of township neglect, what ever happened to the grand repaving project that was supposed to take place? The roads are TERRIBLE & are just getting worse. Hello, is anybody home?

  10. Twsp plan to install a traffic light at intersection of Prospect and Massachusetts. There is no heavy traffic coming out of excel park why is that more important than Pine were cars come flying down hill and it's impossible to turn from Avenue of the state's, forget about crossing over pine street to Pine River.

    1. There is very heavy traffic coming from Massachusetts on to Pine. That intersection is far worse then Cedar Bridge and Avenue of the Americas

    1. While we wait for the world to be destroyed let's make life easier and ask the powers that be (for now) to activate the traffic signal.

  12. A local politician was able to put a light at James and Cross streets way before there was traffic there before the schools moved there. There is no traffic coming out of the dead end street across James.But the wait to cross over was too much and a light was installed. Welcome to corruption where a select few rule.

  13. hopefully once menashe is out of office we will be able to install a light at MLK and Pine. Thats the intersection that needs it most. Nobody in this town knows how to use a 4 way stop and traffic backs up for a mile......
    im so curious why menashe is adamant about not having a light there.

  14. To be fair
    I think Menashe desperately wants a light on mlk and Pine
    However I believe it's a NJ STATE issue and it's years of traffic study, millions of dollars that Christie doesn't want to pay for
    FORESTpark us Menashes home and he would do anything he could to help out the situation if he had the power

    1. There was already a temp traffic light there they had all the traffic studies done. On the other side at Pine and Ave of the states the light has already been installed but they wont turn it on.

    2. I've been told by people that know- menashe is the only reason there is no light at MLK and Pine. He is not allowing it.
