All it takes is a person to bribe the right people for a development and from there it will be a chain reaction.
Someone asked the Wine store why they carry such expensive bottles of Scotch. The owner answered do you know how many developments can be built with that bottle(and were built) :)

Now the state officials who studied the route 9 congestion  issue want to make Hurley a one way eastbound only between Route 9 and Cedarbridge, forcing all the Cedarbridge traffic to turn left on to the 88 to access Route 9 North, because their models show that this would improve the Central ave access to the 9 and help the traffic flow there. If you think Cedarbridge is congested now.....

Yet the zoning board continues to allow more homes to be built ignoring the traffic nightmare.

It's not only the traffic, its the drivers too.
I'm not who you think I am.

When the state changes go into effect to get from cedarbridge to central you would have to take Cedarbridge to 88 to route 9 to central. The plan has not yet been finalized.....

I would divert to pine/james via oberlain.

You can't fix congestion by just shuffling things around.
You have to add infrastructure. Nothing else can help

It would definitely help turning from central onto 9 if there is no light from the other side but I cannot understand how they feel this will help overall.

Pine isn't that much better. You sometimes can help by shifting things. Here it is likely to be yatza scharo bihefsedo
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

The plan is to add two left turning lanes to central, make two lanes on 9NB between central and 88 and longer turning lanes SB to make the left onto Hurley. Helps other traffic but will probably turn CedarBridge into a parking lot since there are no plans to add lanes to cedarbridge so all the traffic that used to turn left onto Hurley as well as the Cedarbridge traffic will now try to squeeze into one left turning lane to make the left onto 88 which is already a disaster now.... If only they would eliminate the parking spaces there and make two left turning lanes onto 88 maybe there would be something to talk about.....

At the end of the day it will fix the issue of prospect-central on the 9 which but they gonna have to make 9SB from 88 to central a 2 lane street

Your best bet is taking chestnut/rt70 to New Hampshire, to Kennedy for the fastest route.
As long as they don't build to many places with entrances on New Hampshire it may be the next "expressway" thru Lakewood.
