The NJ Department of Transportation (DOT) approved a speed limit change on Route 79 in Marlboro Township, between Wyncrest Road and Ridge Road.
The previous speed of 50 mph has been reduced to 45 mph. The NJ DOT signed off on the change on Jan. 4.
Marlboro residents have previously spoken out on Patch and at Township Council meetings about reducing speed limits on other township roads, including Union Hill Road.
The Marlboro Township Council approved a resolution supporting the change, after a resident complained about the speed.
Speed limit signs on the road will be replaced in the near future.
