A tight left turn could lead to close calls for driver's waiting at the Route 79 light.
While Patch readers said they haven't noticed any more of a traffic buildup than usual on Route 79, Patch Editors noticed what could be a minor problem in the pattern. The left turn from Lloyd Road to Route 79 South has some motorists coming close to oncoming traffic sitting stationary waiting to turn left into the CVS parking lot. The drug store on Route 79 at Lloyd Road in Morganville is just the first building on a newly cleared property, which will soon house a QuickChek fuel station and convenience store and a multi-tenant commercial building in the rear of the property. One year ago, CVS began construction on its building. The entire plot of land is fit for a bank and a retail store yet to be determined, according to blueprints and …

Wally Tunison of The Bicycle Hub in Marlboro has some tips for bicycle riders.
Editor's note: This article was originally published in May, 2012 and is being re-published in honor of National Bicycle Month. May is National Bicycle Month, but Wally Tunison, owner of The Bicycle Hub in Marlboro, wants this to be a month that sparks 365 days of riding. "We encourage people to ride their bikes 365 days a year, and not wait for the 30 days in May," he said. But for those who haven't pumped up their wheels in a while, Tunison said May is a month surrounding a national effort to rediscover your inner child's love of biking. National Bicycle Month began about 20 years ago, promoted by independent bicycle dealers like The Bicycle Hub. "We recommend you start off easy. Wear your helmet, and if you are unsure about your bicycle…

The news drug store is located at Route 79 and Lloyd Road.
Construction is almost complete at the new CVS located on Lloyd Road and Route 79 in Morganville, according to township officials. One year ago, CVS began construction on its building. The entire plot of land will be fit for a bank and a retail store yet to be determined, according to blueprints and Dean Staknys, Marlboro's Assistant Township Engineer. Construction workers were seen this week pouring cement. Large cement and construction trucks parked on the side of the road have warranted a temporary traffic pattern change, blocking the lane on the farthest right when traveling southbound on Route 79. In December, a gas leak caused by construction on the site warranted temporary evacuation of surrounding homes and businesses. CVS is …

The Marlboro Planning Board approved a plan to add more fuel stations to Costco in Morganville.
Costco seems to have a good problem: they have too many fuel customers at their Morganville location. The wholesale warehouse opened in 2011, and Costco is now looking at the traffic pattern within its own parking lot and ways to serve more customers. Representatives proposed adding two more fuel stations, a move the Marlboro Planning Board approved last week as a "good first step." The board and Costco representatives agreed that the current traffic pattern in the parking lot and the volume of cars is pushing customers out into a line in the Rt. 9 bus lane. “Quite honestly, if I can’t get off of Rt. 9, I’m not going to Costco,” Josh Pollak, Planning Board member said. John Palus of Dyanmic Engineering in Lake Como said the plan to add …
