Town Council approves discontinuing 2 Bedford roads
The discontinuance of Harvey Road was approved with little discussion. Planning Director Rick Sawyer explained that Harvey Road and Autumn Lane were extended in 1995, leading to two “bulb areas” that no longer needed to be public roadways.
No public comments were made. The council approved the motion unanimously.
The request before the council, Sawyer said, was most closely aligned with the portion of Bedford Center Road near the Route 101 Plaza. Sawyer said that, as part of the request, access to Route 101 would be closed.
Steven Keach, president of Bedford-based Keach-Nordstrom & Associates, representing the owner of the Route 101 Plaza, offered to answer questions. Councilor Normand Longval expressed concern that drivers might cut through the parking lot, after the road portion is incorporated into the driveway.
He added, “To eliminate a curb cut that is situated right at the start of a turning lane, to me, makes a great deal of sense.”Unlike with the discontinuance of Harvey Road, several residents spoke during the public comment portion to discuss the Bedford Center Road item.
Keach explained that discontinuing that segment of Bedford Center Road would no longer be under control under the town, but was “not intended to mean that the passageway ceases to exist.”
