Location and Transportation

Situated in Ocean County, Lakewood is advantageously located in the central portion of New Jersey within the state’s pine belt.


It is easily reachable via four exits off the extensive Garden State Parkway—exits 88, 89, 90 and 91—and by way of Route 9, which travels through the heart of Lakewood. I-195 lies just north of the township as well. This location between New York City, Philadelphia, Atlantic City and Newark places it just 10 miles from the great Atlantic Ocean. Lakewood’s proximity to these major markets offers endless benefits to both residents and businesses.

Operated and directed by the Lakewood Township Airport Authority, Lakewood Township Airport is strategically situated in the center of the Lakewood Industrial Park. Its location places it within 40 minutes flying time from the region’s major metropolitan international terminals. Corporate and industrial clients and recreational flyers take advantage of the airport’s facilities and services, which are sure to expand in the near future. The Airport Authority hopes to add a new terminal building to the existing 191-acre airport. Pending approval, the plan will feature public meeting space, a restaurant, an emergency services facility, aircraft hangers, supplemental tie-down spaces, a helipad, self-service fueling options, an observation area and an expanded transient parking area.
