RESPONSE TO WATNONG CROSSWALK CONCERNS:

Considering recommendations of the Borough Engineer and with the best interest of pedestrians, until the intersection can be significantly improved the safest way to access Glenbrook Road is to proceed to Central Avenue to cross. For the upcoming school year, we will be moving one of our crossing guards to the Stiles Avenue and Central Avenue intersection to accommodate students who walk from both the Hawthorne and Watnong areas. While it will add a few more steps for the kids to walk, it is the safest option at this time. For approximately the first two weeks of school, we will have officers posted at both Watnong and Diana to assist with reinforcing the walking routes. 

Thank you for your cooperation,
M.P.P.D.
