Drivers Take Note: Town Installs Stop Sign at Neillian/Evergreen Avenue Intersection
Board members, in their role as road commissioners, agreed to install a “stop” sign on Neillian at its intersection with Evergreen Avenue.
Vehicles up to now have been able to traverse Neillian Street from Summer Street to Evergreen, then left on Evergreen to South Road, without stopping. Whether that actually saves meaningful time is debatable, but the new sign may reduce the rush-hour volume on the residential street.
The recommendation for the signage culminates more than a year of research by the town’s internal traffic staff management team. Current participants are Police Chief Kenneth Fong, Fire Department Capt. John Daniels, Police Lt. Richard Vitale, Officer Tom Devine Public Works Director David Manugian, Jeanette Rebecchi, the DPW’s transportation program manager, and Amy Fidalgo, assistant town manager of operations,
Police are planning to enforce the new signage, said Town Manager Sarah Stanton. “There will be increased patrols in that area.”
