Due to a commute-hour malfunction of the traffic signal on Morris Avenue at the intersection with Maple Avenue, detours have been set up along Meisel Avenue and Maple Avenue.  Because Morris Avenue is a state highway, New Jersey Department of Transportation crews have been dispatched.  They have set up their trucks along with signs and cones to reroute traffic.  According to officials, the lights are stuck in a caution mode and so they are flashing red and yellow.  Because of the volume of traffic and safety concerns, Springfield Police instructed state crews where to position detours. A source indicates that the control box malfunction is a result of a vehicle crash.

The road closures are expected to last several hours and technicians responsible for fixing the lights are not yet on scene as of 8:45 a.m.  The detours are at Meisel Avenue and Riverside Drive, Meisel Avenue and Wabeno Avenue, and Morris Avenue and Main Street to prevent motorists from entering the Morris Avenue jughandle. As a result, there are an unusual amount of vehicles traveling through South Maple Avenue, Joanne Way, Colonial Terrace, Battlehill Avenue and Washington Avenue.
