  1. Hey Planning Board pay attention…. we need more roads and less houses!
    If you had planned for better and more roads this would not be as big a problem as it is anytime we close a road for any reason. I know it is a County road, but that is not an excuse to not have a plan.

  2. It’s been a nightmare for over a month already!
    Closure daily without warning and it changes everyday so if you were able to use somerset ave or east 7th yesterday doesn’t mean you can use it today!!

  3. Traffic nightmare in south Lakewood everyday the whole year. When the traffic is done by you, you can come to Pine St., Spruce St. etc. To experience it again.
