With the building of the Belmont Middle and High School well underway, the impact of the new building on a number of neighborhood streets will be significant. One area that have identified were traffic and transportation challenges will occur are those streets adjacent to the Wellington Elementary School including School, Orchard, Goden.
The High School Traffic Working Group is hosting a public meeting on Thursday night, Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. at Town Hall to discuss a proposed trial period of recommended changes to traffic patterns. The recommendations by the group are:
- Create a one-way section of Goden Street between School and Orchard, allowing the intersection of Goden and School to be squared up instead of offset.
- Create a four-way stop at Orchard and School streets.
- Create a four-way stop at Orchard and Goden streets.
- The pair of four-way stops are dependent on acceptance of the one-way on Goden.
The group’s consultant, BSC Group Consulting, will be at the meeting to explain the recommendations and answer questions.
