Willow Avenue Bridge Squeeze

Why only one lane inbound on Willow Avenue Bridge?

Hmmm. For years, there were two inbound and outbound lanes on the Willow Avenue Bridge.

Then at some point this year, they nudged the yellow double stripe down the middle to the point where it “squeezed” (no relation to the titty bar) the inbound lanes from two to one.

Perhaps it had something to do with the nasty rush hour car accident that happened on the Weehawken side earlier this year.

Either way, it definitely affects congestion a bit. Maybe people are too “scared” and lack the confidence and skill required to effectively operate a motor vehicle.

After all, “safe spaces” are trending big among society’s weaklings.

As they will now only be working on the bridge repairs overnight (whenever they get to it), they should certainly revert back to two lanes both north and southbound over the Willow Avenue bridge.

I really don’t understand why they haven’t done this yet. Anyone we can call to inquire about this?

They did that when the construction began on the Park Ave bridge. It was some sort of attempt at smoothing over the traffic pattern (which was a total fail) but that was all done the night before the construction opened a month back before it got shut back down

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
