LAKE COMO, NJ —Lake Como’s seasonal traffic flow plan is now in place, as both 17th Avenue and New Bedford Road became one-way westbound on May 15.
And starting Friday, May 17, parking on 18th Avenue will be prohibited on the south side of the street from Main Street to New Bedford Road every weekend — from 6 p.m. on Friday through Sunday until 6 p.m. Two-way traffic will continue until B Street, where one-way eastbound traffic continues into Belmar to the beach.
In addition, a two-way stop has been placed at 17th Avenue and White Street to slow down traffic at that intersection.
The changes, which will remain in effect until September 15, are aimed at relieving congestion and increasing safety on the borough’s busiest streets during the prime summer season.
Residents are being asked to be alert to the traffic flow and parking changes — and to be mindful that cars parked on the south side of 18th Avenue on the weekend are subject to being ticketed and towed.
