Two Lakewood street names changed after emergency responders confuse streets

Two street names in Lakewood were switched to help fist responders avoid future confusion.

Last year, TLS reported emergency care was delayed after first responders mixed up street names. Immediately after that incident, an unoccupied street was easily changed.

The Township has now made two changes to occupied streets, and more are expected to come.

Grand Avenue has been changed to Palm Court, and Heckel Way (at Cedarbridge and New Hampshire) is being changed to Hunter Drive.

Some other confusing street names include Eden Court and Eden Lane, Cedar Court and Cedar Street, Manetta Avenue and Manetta Place, and more.

  1. A good start…
    Cedar Row, Cedar CT, Cedar Ave, Cedearbridge, Cedarview, Cedar Street, Cedar Drive.
    Miller Road, Miller Ave(off Rt 88)
    Forest Ave, Forest Drive, Forest Park Circle
    Central Ave, Central ct
    2 different Caranetta drives
    Cottage Ave, Cottage place
    Davids ct, Davis Road, Davos place
    Ya get the drift…

  2. Really?
    Only Lakewood would have this problem.
    I’ve lived in Holmdel and Marlboro…..never a problem.
    I lived all over NYC….Israel too….No Problems.
    One word: GPS

    • If you read the articles headline you will see that this was done for emergency’s. If someone I cared about needs an ambulance I wouldn’t want the driver having to type in the info on a GPS… seconds can mean the difference between life and death.

  3. Wow how do you change everything if I live on 123 grand ave and it changes everybody thinks that I still live on 123 grand ave (girl school boy school lawyers friends mortgage company pluming and most of ALL
    My kids) and we have to get new addresses instead of ________
    We need _______
    Hope we don’t get mixed up

  4. gvuras ari?? lichaim way?? yesodai ct?? yenta peshas place??zundels zone??

    is this a real town or a gadi pollack book?

    ok zundels zone is a joke

  5. I agree with M…it should be changed to something like “old grand” or “grand- palm” to lessen the confusion and impact on people already living there.

  6. It’s like moving without actually moving. Potential to cause major headache. Usps will most likely update their records because they probably coordinate with the municipality. Ups or FedEx and others may take a long time to update and you’ll never get another package for a while. Similar thing happened in md. Not only did my customer not get his package but ups also lost it.
