Capt. Darren McConnell, who heads the police department’s traffic safety division, tells redbankgreen the signs are up for the long-awaited four-way stop at the intersection of Bridge Avenue and Chestnut Street.

“We need a few days of a 45 to 50-degree trend,” McConnell says.

Police plan to place electronic message boards on north- and southbound Bridge alerting motorists to the coming change, he says. The signs will remain for several weeks.

Also coming soon: the state Department of Transportation is scheduled to start work March 9 on the installation of a traffic light and other improvements to the intersection of Maple Avenue (Route 35 north) at Water and White Streets.

Borough Administrator Stanley Sickels says the work may require periodic lane shifts and shutdowns.
