BRICK TOWNSHIP — An ordinance lowering the speed limit on a portion of Princeton Avenue is now under consideration by the township council, at the request of the county engineer.

The proposed speed change is the result of two traffic studies conducted by the county at the request of several Brick Township residents, according to the ordinance.

“The existing speed limit on Princeton Avenue, which is a county road, is 40 miles per hour,” Council Vice President Art Halloran said at the council’s May 25 meeting. “The data collected from the speed survey indicates that the 85th percentile speed ranges from 44 to 46 miles per hour to the west of Beaver Dam Road, and 22 to 23 miles per hour to the east of Beaver Dam Road.

“The collected data supports lowering the speed limit to the east of Beaver Dam Road to 25 miles per hour,” Vice President Halloran concluded. “A reduction to the west of Beaver Dam Road is not supported by the data and will remain at 40 miles per hour.”
