Ocean County received a grant for a project to upgrade parts of Cedarbridge Ave. in Lakewood through the NJTPA’s FY 2017-2018 Local Safety Program (LSP). The grant includes funding for construction and construction inspection services. The project will improve safety and overall operations along the corridor, including at five intersections.
Improvements will include: traffic signal upgrades and dedicated left-turn lanes on Cedarbridge Avenue at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and Vine Avenue; installation of a median with pedestrian refuge islands at both intersections; and bicycle compatible shoulders along the corridor.
As you likely know, Cedarbridge Avenue is a four-lane, heavily travelled east-west corridor that connects the Garden State Parkway to Route 9. Two intersections within this corridor are ranked first and second on the NJTPA’s list of high-crash intersections in the County, and the corridor is ranked 14th overall in the NJTPA region.
