Circle of hope

The state Department of Transportation finally got something right with its redesign of the Collingwood Circle where routes 33 and 34 meet in Wall. Yes, the same DOT that posted street-name signs that have faded beyond recognition and will cost $6 million to replace. We're no fans of New Jersey's infamous traffic circles. But judicious use of yield signs that clearly give drivers in the circle the right of way is making a difference.

It's no fun waiting in the line of cars for a break in the circle traffic, but at least you know what to do when it's your turn. Of course, drivers are pretty cautious now with the construction folks -- and police cars -- on the scene. But let's hope the circle doesn't become the adventure it has long been once they're gone.
