We've all known that this Jersey Shore intersection was the worst and needed a fix for the longest time. At last, our voices have been heard.

A traffic light has finally been put up at the intersection of Hance and Sycamore in Tinton Falls. With those huge trees on the corner, it's nearly impossible to safely make a left onto Sycamore from Hance. You just can't see the oncoming traffic.

I can't tell you how many times I've aired a traffic report during my show about an accident at this intersection.

According to a Monmouth County-funded traffic study and reported by the Asbury Park Press, accidents at Hance and Sycamore are four times the state average.

What was news to me was that a light and traffic adjustments have been in the works for nearly 15 years.

So what was the holdup? Virtually every solution included taking property away from nearby residents. Obviously, that didn't go over too well. This led to many petitions and many town hall meetings.

Kudos to those who came up with a solution that residents and drivers alike seem to be pretty happy with. There is now a traffic light with a dedicated left-hand turn signal on Hance Avenue. There was also a slight widening of Sycamore to make the new traffic flow smoother.

Monmouth County Commissioner Director Thomas A. Arnone said:

I am happy to see the long-awaited improvements to this intersection come to completion. These enhancements were made in an effort to maintain the high quality of life of the area residents while, at the same time, improve the safety of the intersection.

Safe driving, everybody!
