Toms River: County Road Department is out working on a reconfiguration of the intersection today. Traffic going North on Fischer currently has the option to turn right onto Hooper North, or go straight around the reverse jug handle to go South on Hooper. Currently the two left lanes go straight, and the right lane turns right.

The new configuration will prohibit turning right on red onto Hooper North towards Silverton. The left lane will be straight only which remains unchanged. Now the middle lane can go straight OR turn right, with the right lane being for right turns only. All lanes now have a NO Turn on Red, and traffic has the TWO right lanes to turn right onto Hooper Northbound.

These changes will take effect this afternoon. Use caution and be observant of the new traffic pattern. This will alleviate the long lines of traffic waiting to turn right onto Hooper Northbound from Fischer.
