Exxon Gas Station Planned

What's so bad about a bigger gas station?

The most dangerous intersection in West Orange will become even MORE dangerous, with a proposed gas station/convenient store at the Exxon location on Eagle Rock Ave &Prospect Ave, across from the new CVS. Good luck pulling out!

The Big Deal

PROS:

West Orange residents will have a new mini-mart to frequent, as well as a larger gas station with covered fueling bays. 

CONS:

1. The WO Police Department reports that the intersection where this station will sit is, "the most dangerous intersection in West Orange, and quite possibly in Essex County."

2. Increased traffic will greatly impact the likelihood of vehicular and pedestrian accidents.

3. Parts of this property consist of steep slopes, which makes the expansion of the already-existing station challenging.
