Princeton Township Committeeman Bernie Miller has written a letter to the West Windsor Township Zoning Board recommending that left turns onto Harrison Street be prohibited from the Sunoco station located at the intersection of Harrison Street and Route 1.
“I have personally observed vehicles exiting the Sunoco Station turning left onto Harrison Street in the direction of Princeton, blocking all of the lanes of travel as the vehicles attempt to move forward onto Route 1,” Miller wrote. “This, of course, could be an extremely dangerous maneuver under normal circumstances, but even more so if an ambulance or other emergency vehicle is on Harrison Street heading to the hospital. Vehicles turning right onto Harrison Street from Route 1 cannot safely see vehicles crossing the three lanes proceeding to Route 1 as they turn to proceed to Princeton.”
Miller said the right lane of Harrison Street can be used to safely enter Larry’s Sunoco Station from Princeton, but said vehicles leaving the Sunoco station should be required to exit onto Route 1.
The owner of Larry’s Sunoco station is planning major renovations, and has filed an application with West Windsor Township for a site plan and variances. Miller has asked that his feedback be considered when West Windsor Township’s site plan review advisory board and zoning board review the application.
