Some residents fight against proposed access road in Howell Township

Some residents in the Ramtown section of Howell Township are fighting against a proposed access road that would run behind their homes.

The residents call themselves ROAR, Residents Opposed to the Access Road, and they say the proposed $750,000 road will decrease the quality of life and cause safety issues for children in the community. The road would start near Newtons Corner Road and Jacobs Drive and wind back through woods and wetlands to a new 177-unit active adult community.

Howell Township Manager Bruce Davis says nothing is set in stone yet. The township is working on another alternative, which would route all traffic out onto Lakewood-Allenwood road across the border in Wall Township.
