    Motorists traveling through Brick during rush hour Tuesday should plan for delays. 

    The snarl is due to a motor vehicle accident involving a downed traffic signal at Route 70 and Brick Boulevard that occurred around 4 p.m., according to emergency radio transmissions.

    “Avoid the area. Huge mess,” wrote JSHN contributor Mike Weber. 

    The right lane on Route 70 eastbound at Brick Boulevard is blocked, according to 511nj.org. The service reports a five to 10 minute delay through the area at 4:37 p.m.

    But delays are also building on nearby roadways, including Chambers Bridge Road, Hooper Avenue, and Route 88. 

    The area is known for its traffic congestion during a normal afternoon rush hour. 

    No additional information was immediately available.
