EDISON — Edison residents Frank (from left) and Mary Aponte, who have lived at the Woodbridge Avenue-Gurley Road-Trenton Avenue intersection for 48 years, discuss with Middlesex County Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios, Freeholder Deputy Director Blanquita B. Valenti and Freeholder Charles E. Tomaro how the newly completed improvements to the intersection have increased safety.
About 20,000 local residents and commuters pass through the intersection daily. It was the site of 27 accidents since 2010, including one in which a young school girl was injured. The improvements consist of new traffic signals, curbs, a sidewalk and a state-of-the-art video detection system for computerized control of the intersection. The work will allow for better traffic flow, and more importantly, will help make this intersection safer, officials said.
The project was completed through a partnership between Middlesex County, Edison Township and the New Jersey Department of Transportation. The work cost approximately $2 million.
