Public Hearing Concerning Plans for a
North King/Hatfield Roundabout
Monday, March 6, 2017 at 6:30 PM
Hearing Room — Northampton City Hall
210 Main Street, Northampton, MA
From Wayne Feiden, Northampton Director of Planning and Sustainability:
Please come to support improving traffic safety and movement, creating a place where ALL modes of transportation are embraced.
The City is designing, and we expect the Commonwealth to build, a roundabout (small traffic circle) at the intersection of North King Street and Hatfield, just south of the River Valley Market. The roundabout is similar to the one at Pleasant/Conz and Main/Bridge Road/Look Park. Roundabouts create extremely efficient and safe vehicle and pedestrian movements, making it friendlier for all modes of transportation and reducing crashes.
The project will also extend the North King Street sidewalks from Big Y to River Valley Food Coop the Hatfield Road sidewalks from Cooke Avenue to North King Street.
This is a great opportunity to make your voice heard.
