RARITAN, NJ - With the continuation of roadwork in Raritan, six speed bumps will be installed on Bell and Sherman avenues after reports of drivers speeding on those roads.
According to borough engineer Stan Schrek, there will be three speed bumps on each road.
“With the issue of speeding on local streets throughout the borough, we are trying to see the efficacy of these speed bumps,” Mayor Charles McMullin said.
Schrek said the speed limit will still be set at 25 miles per hour, and there will be signage in advance of the speed bumps to help avoid any jolts on vehicles.
“There just may be some issues with parking, and we are trying to place the bumps where there isn’t much parking,” he said, noting that people do park on those streets.
McMullin said that if these speed bumps are successful, they might be considered for other local streets in the borough.
