Acting on their commitment to the citizens of Middlesex County, Senator Patrick Diegnan, Assemblywoman Nancy Pinkin and Assemblyman Robert Karabinchak today announced that the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) will open an office in Middlesex County in the early part of 2018 at a site on Hadley Road in South Plainfield.

"I must complement Motor Vehicle Chairman Martinez for ending this potential crisis and express my appreciation for his resolve in re-establishing an office in South Plainfield as one of his top priorities,” said Senator Diegnan (D-Middlesex). “My constituents have been as adamant as I have been about re-opening a South Plainfield location and I look forward to the ribbon cutting in early 2018."

“I am thrilled that the Motor Vehicle Commission will be returning to South Plainfield,” said Assemblywoman Pinkin (D-Middlesex).  “Our constituents have been adversely affected by the closure of the original facility; it’s a win-win for our residents and I look forward to the opening of the new facility.”

“I’d like to thank the MVC for heeding our call and listening to our constituents’ concerns,” said Assemblyman Karabinchak (D-Middlesex). “It will provide much needed relief for constituents not just in South Plainfield, but also in the rest of the district who already have to suffer through incredibly long lines.”

In early April of this year, it was announced by the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission that the South Plainfield location at the Golden Acres Shopping Center on Oak Tree Road would cease operations and be shut down before May 13th after the landlord decided not to renew the agency's lease. While many users of the South Plainfield office switched to the already high-volume Edison office on Kilmer Road, the MVC suggested customers visit agencies as far away as Flemington, Somerville and South Brunswick because they experience lower volume and would minimize wait times and inconvenience.

The MVC will still need to approve site location and terms for a lease at a MVC public hearing, but that approval is expected in the fall.
