Pohatcong Red Light Camera To Stay Off
A disputed red light camera on the border of Pohatcong and Greenwich will stay off and a safety project will takes its place to help improve traffic flow.
The camera at the intersection of Routes 22 and 122 was turned off after both towns could not agree on how to share revenue generated from citations issued by the camera. New Jersey Department of Transportation spokesman Joe Dee tells the Warren Reporter that a safety project to replace the cameras "worked its way through the pipeline a little faster than we thought it would" and work will begin in a month or so.
The improvements include a flashing light ahead of the intersection, striping and moving a traffic signal. Dee says the goal of the project is to make drivers “more alert and more aware that they’re approaching this intersection,” he told the Reporter.
