A QuickChek fuel station and convenience store is joining the newly opened CVS at a lot on the intersection of Lloyd Road and Route 79.
QuickChek application representatives presented to the Marlboro Zoning Board for the second time Wednesday, looking for a conditional use variance on the lot to allow both QuickChek and a multi-tenant commercial building in the rear of the property.
The approval of the application came only seventeen days after Matawan denied a similar one, also on Route 79, due to its proximity to their designated train station redevelopment zone.
According to The News Transcript, Zoning Board members expressed traffic concerns in the area. However, the Department of Transportation recently ok'd widening the road as well as altering the intersection traffic signal to reflect a higher commercial traffic volume.
The Marlboro Zoning Board approved the application on March 19.
