As many of us can attest to, the Norwood Ave - Park Ave traffic light is disproportionally advantageous to those traveling on Norwood Ave. The light goes green on Norwood Ave for 65 seconds, but only 13 seconds on Park Ave. I have witnessed myself the backup of the traffic light lead to delays of up to 10 minutes. The point of this petition is not to make the times between Norwood and Park to be equal, rather for either a slight reduction in green time on Norwood Ave, or a slight increase in green time on Park Ave.
Upon reaching out to the mayor about this issue, he explained to me that Norwood Avenue is a state highway, and thus can only be changed at the state level. So, I was directed to the New Jersey Traffic Department, and after a month I finally got word that my request for a time switch on this traffic light had been denied.
This petition will serve to show that hundreds of people share this same belief that this traffic light has gone unchanged for far too long! Sign the petition and bring change to better our city.
