Construction On New Hampshire Avenue In Full Swing – Pay Attention To Lane Shifts & New Speed Limit

new_hampshire_3-14-11PHOTO: The construction on New Hampshire is speeding up, and motorists should be slowing down. As the weather warms up, expect traffic on New Hampshire – an arterial roadway through Lakewood – to increase. The construction is expected to last another few months, but will result in a wider road and two new turning lights which will help the flow of traffic. The turning lights will be added to both Pine Street and at Oak Street.

Currently, New Hampshire Avenue has two northbound and two southbound lanes which are heavily congested at times, as motorists use the road to avoid Route 9 traffic, especially during the daytime hours.

Lane shifts begin at 8:00 AM and continue until about 5:00 PM each work day and the posted speed limit in the work zone is now 35 MPH. TLS.
