New parking restriction takes effect today on Wolfe Road near Mount Olive Middle School

MOUNT OLIVE TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – To improve the safety of pedestrians and drivers on Wolfe Road near the Mount Olive Middle School, Chief Michael T. Spitzer, in partnership with Mount Olive Township and the Mount Olive Township School District, have announced that new emergency roadway restrictions will be temporarily implemented effective Monday, April 22 until at least the end of the 2024 school year.

Specifically, in addition to the existing parking restrictions enforceable on Wolfe Road, the new emergency roadway restrictions will be implemented as per a Township Resolution approved at the April 16 council meeting.

The resolution authorizes a trial program prohibiting vehicles from stopping and standing on Wolfe Road (Northbound) between Flanders-Drakestown Road and Kings Arrow Road during school hours to reduce traffic congestion.

The police department conducted a traffic study during March to investigate the congestion and safety concerns in front of the middle school on Wolfe Road.

It was recommended, on a trial basis through the end of the school year, to temporarily prohibit vehicles from stopping and standing on Wolfe Road from Flanders­ Drakestown to Kings Arrow Road during school hours.

“We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we move forward toward making our streets, walkways, and crossings safer, especially near our schools, police said.
