Ocean County officials are taking the next steps to bring a new redesigned traffic signal by two popular shopping centers on Hooper Avenue, here, to fruition.
“I am pleased that we are moving ahead with plans to authorize our County Engineer to advertise for this beneficial project,” said Ocean County Freeholder Director Joseph H. Vicari. “When this work is complete it will bring much needed relief to motorists accessing these plazas.”
Planned changes to the traffic signal and traffic pattern by the two popular shopping centers on Hooper Avenue, south of Indian Hill Road, will allow motorists to make left turns without having to access nearby U-turns.
“This change will provide full access to Hooper Avenue,” Vicari said. “The current traffic signals provide limited access to Hooper Avenue.
“The new traffic signal configuration will help motorists access both north and southbound Hooper Avenue and also will allow for the crossing of Hooper Avenue to the other shopping center,” Vicari said. “This is good for motorists and good for business.”
Vicari along with Freeholder Virginia E. Haines brought the request to look at the traffic signal in the area to Freeholder John P. Kelly, Director of Law and Public Safety, earlier this year.
