Readington Citizens for Roundabout Alternatives started this petition to Hunterdon County Board of Chosen Freeholders and

Let your elected officials know that you OPPOSE the roundabout and SUPPORT alternatives at the intersection of CR 523, CR 629, and Springtown Rd.

Background: This dangerous 5-way intersection causes a significant number of traffic accidents each year. As such, the County has recently begun the design of a roundabout, using approved Federal funding.  Readington Citizens for Roundabout Alternatives (RCRA) was formed to seek alternatives for a more tempered approach, thus avoiding the cost, disruption and negative environmental impact of a permanent roundabout.  

RCRA’s ALTERNATIVE PLAN, with qualified funding as set forth in the US Code, Title 23 (Highways), Chapter 1, § 148 REDUCE SPEED and ENFORCE IT:

  • Reduce speed limits to 40 mph for the approaches, 25 mph through the intersection
  • Install highly visible signage
  • Enforce new speed limits
  • Terminate the Springtown Road exit, changing this from a 5-way to a 4-way intersection
  • Channelize the intersection using land triangles

Many of these alternatives can be implemented immediately as opposed to the 3+ year roundabout plan.

The RCRA is NOT asking for financial donations, we simply ask that you spread the word and ask your friends and neighbors to support the petition.
