Chesterfield’s Rtes. 9 & 63 intersection a safety concern for town officials
The decision was made last month and the board has just sent the request, said Town Administrator Rick Carrier.
Many motorists traveling the major east-west highway of Route 9, though, are unaware of the danger when they approach.
“The posted speed limit is 50 miles per hour through there and people sometimes go faster than that,” Carrier said.
But it is common for motorist to shoot straight across Route 9 without stopping. The intersection can also be dangerous when Route 9 traffic is traveling too fast to react to slowed, stopped or crossing traffic at the intersection, Carrier said.
The Select Board members are hoping DOT would give the OK to their idea that a flashing red light be installed facing Route 63 traffic to reinforce the stop there, with a flashing yellow light for Route 9 traffic to indicate motorists should be cautious, Carrier said.
