CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE – A traffic signal at Route 47 and Fulling Milling Road has hung lightless for several weeks, and township officials said at Monday’s committee meeting that compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act requirements could keep light dim for another couple of weeks.

 “New ADA compliance rules mean that the light has to be re-engineered,” said Mayor Tim Donohue.

Connie Mahon, business administrator, said the state Department of Transportation plans to contact the county with more information about the signal’s activation date sometime this week.
