Hi Mr Mayor,
Thank you for your time,
Recently a box junction has been painted at the intersection of Chestnut St. and New Hampshire Ave., allowing cars the opportunity to turn from Chestnut when the light at the 70 and New Hampshire is red.
We really need such a box junction at this corner:
This intersection is used by drivers, driving east on the 70 trying to turn left onto New Hampshire. The light backs up and it’s been getting tougher and tougher making that left turn.
Response from Mayor Coles:
I agree with you that significant Improvements need to be made where the Rt 70 exit meets New Hampshire. I am forwarding your suggestion to our engineering department. I will ask them to get in touch with the County, since New Hampshire is a County road, and see if we can have the box painted in or come up with some other idea to make this intersection safer. Thank you for reaching out.
