Rt 183 Access from Route 46 (Now open...but)

They've got access open from Route 46 to Route 183.

The stop "line" traffic light for Route 46 East is a good distance away from the actual traffic light controlling its flow. The light that is at the Route 183 intersection is for the left-hand turn onto Route 183 from Route 46 East. Cars see the red turn light for Route 183 and think it is their light to go straight ahead. Horns are constantly beeping. Cars are slowing down or inappropriately coming to a stop. It's a fender bender (or worse) waiting to happen.

Secondly, what's with the left-hand turn from Route 46 East onto Route 183 North? It's more than a 90 degree turn.(It reminds you of the left-hand turn from Waterloo Road (going towards Hackettstown) into the Trade Zone.) Cars are struggling with it. What will happen when a fire truck, semi or even landscape truck pulling a trailer try to make that turn? Should be very interesting for all drivers during bad weather.
