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].

Question: Hi,

Turning left on to Route 9 from County Line Road is nearly impossible. You Can literally be waiting at the light through 4 light changes and there isnt even that many cars ahead of you.

Why is there no left arrow light at that intersection? Its extremely busy and very hard to turn there.

Response from Mayor Coles: Good morning

I agree with you. With have requested left turn arrows at that intersection as well as Kennedy Blvd. The state keeps refusing, but we will keep asking until we get it done.

  1. For asking and getting denied I could also do that.

    Where’s our politicians that are hooked up/connected in the state and county ? This is a no brainer, the silly turn arrows can alleviate so much traffic

    As I respect the mayor for following up with these emails, but all I keep hearing is I will be requesting, but it doesn’t seem anything gets done

  2. Is there an Agency and address that the community can send letters to? Although you represent Lakewood, it still is only one phone call and/or one letter that the state is receiving and has to deal with. But if the community sends a letter, it is now hundreds or maybe thousands of letters and/or emails to the State that they will have to deal with. It might have an impact?
