Central Avenue Speed Limit Change

Our Police Department Traffic Safety Bureau and Department of Public Works has completed sign upgrades and installations along Central Avenue.
Effective today, April 12, 2022, the speed limit on Central Avenue, between Maple Street and the Chatham Township line, has been reduced to 30MPH.
This section of Central Avenue has residential, commercial, industrial, and school traffic that traverse it daily. Drivers are reminded to share the road with pedestrians and bicycles! New Jersey’s Safe Passage law requires that drivers give a minimum four foot safety zone when passing bicycles and walkers. If you cannot provide a four foot safety zone you must slow your vehicle to 25MPH.
Please do your part and set a good example, be aware and drive with care!
