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].
Dear Mayor Coles,
I respectfully ask that you or one of your deputies take a drive on Drake Road. The windy street has no shoulders, no lane markings, poor lighting and numerous potholes and uneven pavement. Further, the road has different widths at various points making it treacherous and extremely dangerous to navigate for cars passing each other in opposite directions at the road’s narrowest points. G-d forbid, it’s accidents waiting to happen. I humbly suggest that this should be a priority Township project. It’s a short street; perhaps you can devote a few moments to drive on it some night so you can see for yourself.
Thank you in advance for your prompt attention and hopeful resolution.
Response from Mayor Coles:
Public Works will have out Pot Hole crew out to Drake Rd today. Additionally I have asked our Engineering Department to review the whole stretch of road and come back to me with recommendations about what we can do to improve safety concerns in the short term as well as a plan to fully address any issues on the road.
Thanks for bringing this to my attention
