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

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,

Is there a way to get the traffic signal timings re-evaluated at New Hampshire Avenue corner Pine Street? For those traveling east on Pine street, it can take 2-3 lights to cross New Hampshire due to the ridiculously short green light. I pass there each day, and I find that the light allows for the crossing of 10 or so cars (less, if there is a bus or truck involved) per green light when the line to cross is so much longer.

Thanks,

Eli

Response from Mayor Coles:

Good morning

This is a fairly common issue with lights in different parts of town. I have sat at that same light many times as well. I have reached out to the county to request the timing be adjusted.

Thanks

Ray

Question:

Hi,

Is it possible to have a left turning lane on Cedarbridge at the Clover intersection going towards Bricktown? Traffic gets very bottlonecked there and there seems to be plenty of space to make a left turning lane.

Thank you

Response from Mayor Coles:

Good morning. This is one of several intersections on Cedarbridge that we have asked the county to widen & improve. We waiting on their timetable for construction.

Thanks

Ray

  1. Pine street and New Hampshire sensors need to be fixed too. It always gives a turning tight to turn from New Hampshire to Pine Street or Oberlin even if there are no cars there waiting to turn. Just a waste of time for everyone.

  2. Left turn new hampshire north to cedarbridge west not long enough during morning rush. Needs to be extended especially 8 – 10 am
