Highland Lakes Road Conditions

Does anyone share my concern for the poor condition of many of the roads in Highland Lakes? Many have not been paved in years, only a patch job. It is my opinion that for the amount of taxes paid by each resident, this would be a priority concern. It also concerns me that there are so many blind intersections, making it extremely difficult to make left, or even right, turns. This is most notable to Route 638.

Recently I addressed the deplorable road conditions in Highland Lakes, i.e. Pohatcong, Canandawa, Accabonic, Wicasset. At the same time I referred to the dangerous intersection at Canandawa Road and Route 638. Well, it had to happen, this morning (Tuesday, Sept 26) a driver making a turn out of Canandawa was struck by a truck. The driver of the car was injured. As noted in my previous letter, this intersection has always been dangerous because of a rail fence on the property to the left of the intersection. It is now more dangerous because of bushes planted in the corners of the fence. Does there have to be a fatal accident before something is done to make it safer? Where are the zoning laws in Highland Lakes and Vernon?
I share a concern with the residents in that area, as a mother, grandmother, and friend.
