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 Mr. Mayor,

Thank you for being so accessible to the citizens of Lakewood. I appreciate your active leadership.

I wanted to ask if it is possible to install left turn green lights on the corners of Oak and River, on Broadway and River, on the corner of County Line/Madison and on the corner of Kennedy / Madison.

I know it is a challenge to enhance the infrastructure in order to accommodate the increase in population, but these are safety features that are necessary to relieve traffic congestion and save lives.

Thank you for your great leadership.

Response from Mayor Coles:

Good afternoon,

I checked with our engineer. The new lights at Broadway & Oak and 9 will have turn arrows. The stat previously approved turn arrows at Countyline & Kennedy. I asked our engineer to follow up with them for a timeline for installation.
