The Maplewood Township Committee is laser focused on continuous improvement in our traffic Maplewood PD Traffic Bureau and pedestrian safety measures. In the last 6 months we have increased details all over town – addressing speeding on our main travel arteries, attacking left turns in the village and enhanced school drop off and pick up at several schools. We are adding speed humps to Rutgers, we will be announcing a new one way only for part of Maplewood Avenue in the village in a phase one effort to enhance one of the worst intersections in town, but we are just getting started! Everyone one can help! Please do your part and leave a few minutes earlier to avoid manic drop offs at the train station or school.
