Lakewood Mayor Ray Coles responds to your ‘Ask The Mayor’ questions: Ridge Avenue

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].


When will Ridge Rd be repaved between New Hampshire and County Line. It’s been awful for years and hasn’t been paved since before the pandemic. Also we could use a left hand turn only for Ridge and County Line. Maybe you could mention that to the county.

Sincerely, Darlene Ward-Garner

Response from Mayor Coles:

Good afternoon,

I know this intersection all to well, having lived in Raintree for 35 years. We mention it to the county every chance we get. They tell us they are designing changes to that intersection as well as Joe Parker Rd. We donated the property at the SW corner to them several years ago to facilitate the needed changes.

I have asked the manager to send them another formal request for a timetable on the work.
