Bedford committee to present master plan for future biking, walking paths
The committee will present a proposed master plan to the public at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 10, at the Planning Board meeting, at 10 Meetinghouse Road.
Committee member Bill Dermody said it’s important for Bedford to plan for better access for walkers and bikers in the future.
The survey revealed that 95 percent of residents would like to walk or bike, and 85 percent were walkers and 80 percent were bikers. Safety concerns centered on crossing Route 101 and its link to Wallace, North Amherst, Hardy and Jenkins roads, Nashua Road near Bedford High School, the library and the Bedford Village Common. However, residents were divided as some said biking along Route 101 is safe because of its wide shoulder access, while others said they would not use the highway for biking.
New Boston Road, part of the Merrimack Valley Regional Bike System, was another preferred area especially near Riddle Brook School, but with narrow shoulders and high-speed traffic it, too, creates safety issues. To view the Bedford Bicycle-Pedestrian Master Plan report, visit www.bedfordnh.org.
