The following is an ‘Ask The Mayor’ question submitted to TLS, and the Mayor’s response. Email your questions for the Mayor to [email protected].
This intersection is one that has been asked about repeatedly. It was last on this forum in December 2021 when you told your constituents that it has taken far too long and you requested another update from the county.
It is now almost July. There is more congestion coming because of the development in the area. Please give us an honest update into the work being done. It is a big problem and a devastating accident waiting to happen.
We all know that if someone were to get killed there God forbid, it’d be fixed in a week. Please don’t let it come to that. Please let us know the true status, not just say that you will check with the county.
Response from Mayor Coles:
If it was within the township’s power, this would have been done years ago. Unfortunately, it involves both the county (who owns New Hampshire) and the state (due to Chestnut’s proximity to Rt70).
When I checked a month or so ago I was told that all plans had been approved and that it should move forward soon.
I cannot give you a date certain, but I will tell you that this is one of the top 3 issues we raise every time we meet with the county to discuss needed road improvements.
I will follow up again and see if we can get an update on construction plans.
