LIFE ALONG the congested eastern section of Mountain Road just got a little more complicated, thanks to a new county public works project on Woods Road. Earlier this month, a sign appeared, seemingly overnight, informing commuters that a section of Woods Road would soon close temporarily. Vehicles coming from Mountain Road would be allowed only as far west as the Lake Shore Athletic Complex. No dates for road closure were listed on the sign. "The sign just appeared telling us that Woods Road was closed," said Wilbert Parks, a Ryan Road homeowner.

"Dutch" Holland and the county's chief traffic engineer, Jim Schroll.Woods Road, which cuts through the Chelsea Beach and Pine Crest communities, has become a bypass for motorists who want to get from Magothy Beach Road to the Pasadena peninsula without getting mired in the heavy traffic at several Mountain Road intersections.

Within the next two weeks the Public Works Department will decide whether to close Woods Road in Lake Shore to through traffic, a plan the Chelsea Beach Residents Association supports but that some say could increase Fire Department response time.Association members, long worried about area traffic, are now concerned about the increase when the Lake Shore Athletic Complex opens this fall. They say a barrier on Woods Road just west of 11th Street would solve the problem by diverting traffic to Mountain Road or Route 100.Jim Schroll, a traffic engineer with Public Works, said the department will meet with residents and make its decision after the Fire Department completes a study of how the barrier would affect response times.
