New 4-Way Stop at Orchard-Opossum IntersectionPosted on October 11, 2019
Montgomery Township would like to make the public aware of a new traffic pattern.
On Tuesday, October 8th, Montgomery Township established a four-way stop at the Orchard Road and Opossum Road intersection. There are new stop-signs, indicating ALL-WAY stopping, as well as other permanent signage and road markings to alert drivers of the new stop requirement on Orchard Road.
The Montgomery Township Committee approved the four-way stop at its September 19th meeting.
The eastern side of the Orchard Road intersection is closed to non-local traffic for three months due to replacement by Somerset County of the small bridge near 88 Orchard Rd. During this bridge closure, the Orchard-Opossum intersection is experiencing less traffic than typical, which was seen as a good time to make this intersection change.
