Bedford's South River Road plan laid out
The public hearing is slated for Wednesday, July 16, at 7 p.m. at 10 Meetinghouse Road. At the hearing, the layout of the road, easements at Washington Place, Colby Court and Beaudoin Street, and the acquisition of property rights will be discussed.
The Town Council approved the Tax Increment Financing District, or TIF, plan in March, paving the way for safety improvements and a revitalization of South River Road and some side streets to promote economic development in the area. The main project will entail repaving and sidewalk improvements, and additional lighting and landscaping at certain intersections. TIF is a method to use future gains in taxes to subsidize current improvements.
In 2011, the town authorized the council to pursue a bond for $4.1 million, and for 2014 the council authorized an additional $100,000 in the capital improvement plan for traffic signals, and $900 from an infrastructure bond.
Construction will begin at the CVS pharmacy to the city line, and the area from Kilton Road to Back River Road. Improvements to side streets will include Park Drive, Upjohn Street, Beaudoin Street, Eastman Avenue, Wathen Road, Hull Road and Colby Court. A dedicated right lane will be added from Colby Court into Bedford Place to improve safety and traffic flow.
