Route 9 Corridor Study - Lakewood Meeting

It is important for the public to attend this meeting some of the proposed changes will have major traffic effects on Lakewood residents and commuters. View map HERE 
 An open house-style meeting on the Route 9 Corridor Study will be held on Wednesday, September 28th, in Lakewood at the Municipal Building to detail the study team's recommendations for corridor improvements. See meeting flyer for details. The meeting featured information stations with opportunities for the public to provide feedback, maps detailing the proposed improvements and information about the Access Management Plan, which will aid municipalities in better managing the impact of traffic from future development along the corridor.
Access Management attempts to balance the need to provide good mobility for through traffic with the requirements for reasonable access to adjacent land uses.  The techniques are to consolidate and align driveways where possible or provide access to side streets instead of the state highway directly, particularly for left turns.  This improves safety and improves traffic flow on the state highway by eliminating conflict points. 
Materials to be discussed at the meeting will be posted on this page shortly.

If you are unable to attend the meeting, you can send your comments or ask questions via email to:


  1. Read the last paragraph who caused these issues?

  2. This is ridiculous. It's like saying I want to keep eating and get as fat as possible So I need to figure out how to widen my hallways and doors So I can fit my giant body through them. And I keep eating and widening until there is no house left. Keep it up fellas. You are doing great .

  3. A few months ago there was an article about the "rt 9 corridor". The study showed that one of the chief reasons the 9 is so bad in Lakewood is the amount of access point there are per mile. So what does the brilliant Lakewood board do? APPROVE MORE ACCESS POINTS!!
