My teenage daughter and I drove to pick up her friend in Shrewsbury on Monday, a little before noon, and as we easily made our left turn onto Branch Avenue off of Rumson Road, she commented, "Wow, that's the quickest we've ever been through there."
We made it through the usually precarious intersection with ease with an assist from thethat was switched on earlier in the morning.
The light at White Road and Branch in was also fully operational on Monday.
Who knows what traffic will look like during busier times of day, as cars tend to pile up along Rumson and White roads waiting to turn onto Branch, and even along Branch Avenue itself. When a portion of Seven Bridges Road shuts down beginning next week, according to the county, even more cars are expected to be traveling through those intersections.
