MANALAPAN - Residents in Manalapan are trying to put the brakes on a plan to open a new car dealership on the corner of Route 9 and Taylors Mills Road.

The Ray Catena Auto Group wants to open a dealership on the site of a vacant office building at the intersection.

Residents say the dealership would cause greater traffic congestion in an area that already has traffic issues.

A spokesman for the dealership says a car dealer would generate less traffic than an office complex filled with employee cars.

The issue is expected to be discussed at the town's next planning board meeting Dec. 8 at 8 p.m.
