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

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].


Ridge Avenue between Countyline/Lanes Mill Road and New Hampshire Avenue, is that a County or Township block? How do we get sidewalks over there? It is an extremely busy block and there is a lot of pedestrian traffic.
Response from Mayor Coles:

Good morning

It is a county road. A redesign of the intersections at New Hampshire and Ridge and New Hampshire & County Line/Lanes Mills are currently being designed to provide turning lanes and other safety improvements. We are also looking at filling in the gap of sidewalks along Ridge north & south of New Hampshire.

  1. What about Oak Street between Albert and New Hampshire? The street is in such bad shape all the cars drive on the shoulder which makes it extremely dangerous to walk.

    I thought I remember a Q&A last year where the mayor said sidewalks would be added early 2019 🙁

    Besides for walking I have to wait for bussing every morning with my kid and there is nowhere to stand.

  2. just curious when do homeowners need to fix their side walks and when does the township fix the side walks like ive seen many times??
