At a continuation of the 40B hearing for -- a proposed 96 unit affordable housing complex off West Street -- earlier this week, Police Chief Robert Meaney Jr. told the Zoning Board of Appeals that there have been many "spectacular" crashes at the intersection of Route 27 (North Meadows Road) and West Street.
If the affordable housing complex is built (approximately 1,000 feet from the intersection), it will add another estimated 638 vehicle trips a day to the traffic pattern in that area.
Traffic engineers told the ZBA that the intersection is a problem today. Representatives from the developer, Gatehouse Group LLC, agreed.
