County Adds New Traffic Signal at Williamstown & Tuckahoe Roads

(Monroe) - Gloucester County Freeholder Director Stephen M. Sweeney and Freeholder Deputy Director Bob Damminger were joined today by Monroe's Mayor and Council members to switch on the new traffic signal at Williamstown Road and Tuckahoe Road.

"This improvement was completed with federal stimulus ARRA funding.  The county received over $2.4 million to complete this project that included the signal installation and roadway resurfacing and safety improvements from Hewitt Avenue to County Route 659," stated Freeholder Director Stephen M. Sweeney.

Freeholder Deputy Director Damminger, who is the county's liaison to the Department of Public Works said, "The County would not have been able to complete this project for several years without this federal funding," said Freeholder Damminger.  "We have been very aggressive to receive funding for projects we needed to complete and get the work moving."

Damminger said, "This intersection is very busy and this signal was necessary for traffic safety."  The new signal at Williamstown and Tuckahoe Roads is at an entrance point near the Gloucester County Veterans Memorial Cemetery, 1,300 men and women are laid to rest here and it is a busy stretch of road.
