New Flashing Signal at Intersection of Franklinville Road and Tomlin Station Road in South Harrison Now Operational

(South Harrison Twp., NJ) – A new flashing signal at the intersection of Franklinville Road, County Route 538, and Tomlin Station Road, County Route 607, in South Harrison Township is now in full operation announced Freeholder Director Stephen M. Sweeney and Freeholder Deputy Director Bob Damminger. 

Freeholder Director Sweeney said, “In addition to the new flashing signal, the county added new oversized stop signs and other warning signs to reinforce the stop sign on Tomlin Station Road.  Traffic along Franklinville Road will now have additional warning of the intersection by an overhead flashing yellow light and also new warning signs,” Sweeney stated.

“This intersection handles additional traffic volumes during the summer season as a recreational route to the shore and this location has also been experiencing traffic volume growth as part of surrounding development in neighboring Woolwich and Harrison Township,” said Deputy Director Damminger.  “”This new signal will help motorists be more aware that they are approaching a stop,” Damminger said.  Freeholder Damminger is the liaison to the Department of Public Works.

The flashing signal, which took two months to install, was paid for with a federal aid safety grant that the county applied for and received for this location.
