The Town’s engineering consultant, VHB, is finalizing the concept plans for The Great Road between Memorial Park and the North Road/Carlisle Road intersection.

The goals of the project are to redesign the corridor to increase bicycle and pedestrian safety, maintain the historic streetscape along the roadway and provide traffic modifications to reduce vehicular conflicts.  The project also includes a site-specific study to develop consensus for modifications to Willson Park.   Bike lanes and wider sidewalks will be provided both east- and west-bound.

The project team from VHB will present the current plan to the Town at the Selectmen’s meeting on Monday, March 13th at 8:15 pm at Bedford Town Hall, 10 Mudge Way.  Click this link to see the slides that will be presented.

It looks very nice, but I see nothing on Slide 7 to mitigate the massive traffic backups on Concord Road in the late afternoon, as eastbound traffic attempts to cross traffic on two roads to reach North Road westbound. I don’t know if there is a similar problem in the morning, but the afternoon traffic problem needs work.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
