  1. There are many but I wish the township would be open to the Israeli model where the lights are only working at peak traffic hours and change to blinking lights on the off peak hours

  2. E. 7th and Somerset

    and a dedicated green arrow at East Kennedy turning left onto the 9 North.

    while you’re at it please please put in a word to widen the 9 south of Main street.

  3. The intersection by Pine/James and route 9 can use a restriping of dedicated turning lanes onto Route 9 as well as a turning light. That alone would alleviate traffic on Pine and James

  4. Left turning signal on cedarbridge turning left onto clover.
    Left turning signal on clover turning onto route 88.

    Park Avenue and Route 88

  5. Turning light and lane from Cedarbridge southbound onto Clover. There can be a center turning lane down the whole Cedarbridge to alleviate buildup when someone is turning from Cedarbridge either direction to Arlington, Melville, Circa parking lot etc…..

  6. Oak & rt 9
    Evergreen & chateau
    Chestnut & new Hampshire
    rt 9 & Ford Ave/Finchley
    Prospect & massachusetts- the light needs to be fully functional not blinking, with a left turn option.
    2nd & clifton- needs fully functional not blinking.
    Rt 9 & Spruce
    Washington & Pine

  7. Summer Ave and prospect. Massachusetts and prospect . Prospect and cross.

    Besides traffic lights can we maybe make through streets instead of endless culde sacs and dead ends so we don’t have so much bottlenecking

  8. The lack of a turning light at Cedarbridge and Clover affects over a thousand families in addition to the thousands of parents who send to the cheder and orchos Chaim. It has been brought to the attention of Township officials numerous times over the last decade and each time they have promised to bring it up with the county with no results. This is a minor infrastructure improvement and there is no reason for the county to be dragging its feet on an issue that impacts so many residents. Perhaps it is time for the thousands of voters in the area to start a petition to let the county know if this is an issue that should be given attention.

  9. the problem is not were to place the traffic lights the township knows exactly were to place them ,one does not have to be a genius to figure that out just drive around and you can see, the problem is A many roads are owned by the county B that it can cost a half on million to put one up.

  10. @lakewooder absolutely not necessary for a traffic light at the corner of Cary and Cliff and I live right there it’s barely ever busy unless it’s middle of the day during busing.

    A light would be a disaster

  11. 1)oak and rt 9
    And adopt the isarlie method that at non peak hours such as 3 am they go to blinking
    using brains isnt a crime but yes we all know its country roads and ALL their fault


    thank you

  12. Chestnut & New Hampshire already have a major infrastructure upgrade planned that will also install a traffic light. Since it’s a county road, there’s a lot of red tape involved, hence the delay.

  13. A Right Turn Arrow on County Line and Hope at both streets – Hope turning onto County and County turning onto Hope. Also perhaps a right turn only lane on County Line turning onto hope. WIll eliminate so much traffic there!!!

    Powderhorn and Sunset

    Williams & James!!

  14. New Hampshire and Chestnut is so dangerous I avoid it at all costs. I opt to take route 70 to Locust and make a left on New Hampshire. Something is wrong that nothing has been done there. In reality a light there might interfere with the rout 70 traffic. I most simple solution would be to have a sign “stop here when light is red” on for New Hampshire traffic crossing over the chestnut intersection. Presently one might be required to bench גומל when crossing.

  15. 14th and Hooe Chapel

    I was told 2 years ago that it’s coming but although they did some work at that intersection about half year ago , It still DOES NOT HAVE A MUCH NEEDED LIGHT!!; WHY?!?!

  16. The problem with being able to make a left turn at Clover and rte. 88 as well as Kennedy to Rte 9 North is MAJOR. Cars back up sometimes 10-12 or more and barely 2 or 3 get to make the turn. This problem could be EASILY SOLVED. Make the lights “unsynchronized”, meaning have green for one side and a delay for the green for the other side.

  17. 4 way stop signs are a bad idea. The signs aren’t obeyed.
    Each driver thinks they have the right away. Not to worry, though. Bore’ Olam will help.

  18. Second and Clifton. There is already a light but has not been activated for months ams just blinking and its causing huge traffic backups downtown especially in the mornings.

  19. 1. Lengthen the turn signal from New Hampshire on to Cedarbridge
    2. Put a left turning arrow from Pine on to Rte 9
    3. Put a left turning arrow from Rte 9 on to Pine
    4. Put a left turning arrow from Cedarbridge on to Clover.

  20. The more traffic lights that are installed the slower the traffic will flow. There are so many cars on the road that when the traffic light changes there will be no place for the cars to go.
    We have all heard this for years, we let the builders have their way and now we are going to have to live with the result.
    We need more roads, the roads need to be wider. The new roads need to be wide enough to park on each side and for 2 cars to pass each other without snaking around each other. End building cul-de-sacs. connecting roads.
