Lakewood Mayor Ray Coles responds to your ‘Ask The Mayor’ questions: Clover and 88

The following is an ‘Ask The Mayor’ question submitted to TLS, and the Mayor’s response. Email your questions for the Mayor to [email protected].



The intersection of clover and Ocean/route 88 is extremely dangerous. Cars driving on Clover block the lane waiting to make a left turns on Ocean causing drivers to drive on the shoulder and block right turning cars and make a messy and confusing road. Please can you see if the roads can be widened and add a lane for the turning vehicles as this will alleviate all the clover back up as well.


Response from Mayor Coles:

Good afternoon,

We have asked the county to make numerous improvements to the intersections at either end of Clover. I will be sure to pass this along and offer whatever assistance we can.

  1. Well it was the township that allowed dense construction on all 4 corners of clover and Rt 88, claiming that Rt 88 won’t be turned into 2 lanes anytime soon. So now there is no room for turning lanes or a shoulder to go around other vehicles. So yes it’s our fault with no one else to blame.
