LODI, N.J.– Fewer cars are expected to zip through Lodi's streets, thanks to eight new stops signs placed at various intersections.

The borough police Traffic Bureau took action after residents complained, Borough Manager Bruce T. Masopust said Wednesday.

"[The roads] were going to be speedways unless we put in stop signs," he told Daily Voice.

Willard Street benefits greatly from the project, which targeted mostly one-way streets (see list below).

A bicyclist was struck on the street, a resident there said.

"People don't pay attention," he said. "If they put down the phone, we wouldn't need stop signs."

A Farnham Avenue resident said drivers speed down Farnham and Willard Street and through stop signs "all the time."

The new stop signs are in placed on:

  • Farnham Avenue at Warren Street;
  • Farnham Avenue at Willard Street;
  • Westminster Place at Willard Street;
  • Westervelt Place at Willard Street;
  • Burns Avenue at Willard Street;
  • St. Joseph Boulevard at Leo Place;
  • Central Avenue at Prospect Street;
  • Central Avenue at Grove Street
