Stop, Please Stop, At Otsego

By on July 19, 2017

Otsego stop signA friendly reminder from this early morning walker: There is now a stop sign on Claremont Avenue at Otsego Road.

So whether you are headed east or west on Claremont, you need to make a full and complete stop at Otsego. Stop signs have also been installed at Otsego and Malvern, making this an odd-shaped four-way stop. This means there are now two four-way stops on Claremont; one at Elmwood and this new one.

I’m sure we are all hoping that this will slow down those who speed down the road in an effort to try and avoid traffic on Bloomfield Avenue. The speed limit on Claremont is SUPPOSED to be 25 mph; something else we should all remember, not just during the school year when kids are walking to and from school, but all year round!

With all the deer I’ve seen recently in the area, it would behoove us all to pay attention to the speed limits!

    Why is there a stop sign at Otsego? Also, What happened to Carnevale’s?

    Verona has been conducting traffic surveys on many streets in town to see if they could qualify for stop signs that might reduce speeding. The Claremont-Otsego intersection qualified. As for Carnevale’s, it has been replaced by Mavis Discount Tire.
