Increasing Main Street traffic is cause for concern in Goffstown
“There is no great answer. Either a traffic light or a roundabout causes back-up,” said Carl Quiram, Goffstown public works director. “Traffic constantly goes through that choke point.”
“That option could be very damaging to downtown businesses and residential areas,” said Quiram.
A full roundabout in that area would require straightening the intersection and moving the library back slightly from its present location.
The projected cost of the project is $888,000 for the intersections of Main and Pleasant streets, and for Main, High and Elm streets. The project is being funded by the town and a state Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality grant. The town will incur 45 percent of the cost, with the grant funding the remaining 55 percent.
