BRICK – Traffic is bad there on most days. But with the holiday season approaching, Brick Township Police are taking steps to keep traffic moving on Route 70 and Chambers Bridge Road.
Police will be directing traffic during business hours at Kohl’s Plaza, now through Christmas. Sgt. Neal Pedersen said as manpower allows, officers will be directing traffic on Route 70 and Chambers Bridge, as well as in the parking lot.
Motorists are encouraged to use alternate entryways into the plaza, either on Route 70 by Kirklands, or past the plaza and using the jug handle on Chambers Bridge at Ovation Way and across the road to a side entrance.
“[Traffic] always increases at that plaza in holiday season, so with just that supermarket and Stop and Shop [on Brick Boulevard] for supermarkets for the holidays, traffic increases as well,” Pedersen said. “We always experience high volumes that time of year. We’re trying to keep traffic flowing.”
