PHOTO: 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.
It would be nice to not be the ONLY car on new hampshire that obeys the 35mph zone, PLEASE slow down
Is it 35 mph only during the 8 am to 5 pm hours, or is it even outside those hours?
I’ve never had a traffic problem on that stretch of road.
Can someone please clarify the necessity of this construction job?
have you ever driven there at 4:30 pm??? traffic backed up all over and now with the oak street extension open that is a main road to rt. 9. new hampshire should be 3 lanes in each direction from north maple ave. in toms river to rt. 88, then 2 lanes in each direction from rt. 88 to the end of the park.
Thanks for that, I’ve never realized that.
