A dangerous intersection in Woolwich Township, which officials say has seen 48 accidents in the last three years, will finally get the repairs it so desperately needs, NJ.com reports. City officials say they have been trying to “get something changed” at the intersection of Kings Highway (a Gloucester County owned roadway) and Route 322, which is state-owned.
The New Jersey Department of Transportation has announced that it will execute a project that will reconfigure the intersection and provide dedicated left-turn lanes at all four approaches. The project will also include other safety upgrades and will be completed by the end of the year 2018, officials say.
While driver negligence is one of the main causes of street intersection crashes in New Jersey, it is important to remember that dangerous roadways and intersections can also cause serious injury collisions. The manner in which an intersection is designed or configured can have an impact, for example, on visibility for motorists.
If you or a loved one has been injured due to a dangerous roadway or intersection, you could file a personal injury claim against the governmental agency that is responsible for maintaining the roadway can be held civilly liable for the injuries and damages.
