Part of County Line Road to be shut Wednesday for crucial infrastructure work; Township officials attempted to postpone project

road closed detour tlsDespite pleas from Township officials to postpone work requiring the closure of County Line Road during prime daytime hours, the County says the work needs to be done tomorrow.

TLS spoke with the County Engineer who said the gas company and other utility companies will be moving a gas line tomorrow for the placement of other utilities – an operation crucial before the weather gets colder.

Lakewood officials met with the companies and the County in an effort to postpone the project – and even discussed paying for additional overtime for weekend work, but were explained the urgency of the matter and left with no option.

Asked why it can’t be performed on a weekend, the Engineer explained that the essential personnel for this project would not be available during the weekend.

The road will be shut approximately between Brook Road and Park Avenue from 9:30 AM Wednesday, until the project is complete. The work could last all day.

  1. Unbelievable. You would think most road repairs would be done over a weekend. And someone working on a Rd crew would be willing to work nights and weekends. This will be a nightmare on a very busy traveling day.

  2. Bubbie Zelda,
    Yes, baruch Hashem the Vaad has arranged for helicopter shuttles from the Lakewood Airport to wherever you need to go. There will also be bus shuttles to and from various locations around town to transport those in need to the airport. The shuttle and helicopter is being sponsored as part of the Pesach/Succos Roberts carnival.

  3. It says in the article where it will be closed!
    Between Brook Rd and park Ave.

    These small things shouldn’t bother all of you as much as u make it sound like it is… It won’t kill you!

  4. Open Kennedy from Jackson all the way until Brick!!! Sorry to all the NIMBYs with their nice little cul-de-sacs at the expense of the rest of the town; there needs to be an alternate east-west route at the north end of town!

  5. this area been closed one way on Friday mornings- the few hours when everyone is rushing to /from playgroup, running to the store for a quick shabbos thing. second week in a row i’ve seen this. no peep about that??

  6. To all those complaining…….it’s called radical acceptance! you may not like the inconvenience of detouring so the county can fix YOUR roads but man up and move on with life
    What’s the worst thing you have to add a few minutes to your day…… I feel sorry for you……now you’re left with less time to contemplate what to complain about
    I mean honestly roads bridges tunnels close for repairs or whatever….,,that’s life
