Holiday Rush Clogs NJ Roads Near Amazon Warehouse, Neighbors Say

Business is booming inside Amazon's warehouse in New Jersey, but residents say the holiday rush has led to gridlock on nearby roads.

Robbinsville Mayor Dave Fried threatened legal action Wednesday after Amazon sent a public affairs staffer to a meeting to discuss solutions to the traffic that's clogged area roads. Fried says the meeting was supposed to include operations officials. reports traffic grinds to a halt for miles when the fulfillment center's more than 4,000 employees are going in and out of the facility during rush hour.

Amazon spokesman Aaron Toso says the company will continue to work with local officials to mitigate traffic issues.

Fried says the infrastructure wasn't built to handle this much car volume. He hopes Amazon can change or stagger shifts.
