Lower Speed Limits Coming To Several Toms River Streets

In an effort to improve the traffic safety around town, the Toms River township council approved an ordinance earlier this month that significantly lowers the speed limits on several roads across the municipality.

The impacted streets include the entire length of Cardinal Drive and Colonial Drive, lowering the current speed from 35mph to 25mph, the entire length of Continental Drive, from 30mph to 25mph, part of Schencks Mill Line Road, beginning at the intersection with Hooper Avenue, from 45mph to 25mph, and the entire length of South Shore Drive from 30mph to 25mph.

The township council enacted a similar move earlier this year for the entire stretch of Cedar Grove Road, where the speed limit was lowered from 40mph to 35mph.

That change was recommended by Ocean County Engineer John Ernst late last year after an investigation into crash data along the Cedar grove Road determined that speed was a significant factor in the many accidents there.
