Safety, economic concerns prompt road improvements in Bedford
The plan was adopted in 2010 to revitalize the area and provide better safety along South River Road and its side streets, and to promote economic development in the area. The main project will entail improvements just north of Kilton Road at the CVS pharmacy to the Manchester line.
The plan, which involves about 183 acres and 99 parcels, will see improvements such as repaving, sidewalk enhancements, lighting, landscaping, traffic signals and will provide ongoing maintenance.
Beaudoin Street is currently in an undesirable condition and direct access to the street will be closed, and a connection to the street will be built from Washington Street. He said the town looked at a median access to the street, but it was eliminated because of a lack of space.
“This intersection is one of the worst in town. It’s had 28 accidents over five years, including one fatality of a pedestrian crossing the southern leg of the intersection,” he said.
