DPW Accepting Feedback on Traffic Optimization Plan

January 6, 2023

The Bedford Department of Public Works is interested in public feedback on the results of the recently-released traffic optimization study of The Great Road.

The traffic specialists from Jacobs Solutions focused on a series of intersections along The Great Road corridor.

They recommended several short-term solutions that could relieve congestion, most of them involving traffic signal sequencing and synchronization. The report also detailed long-term design changes at various intersections.

“We’re accepting public comment through Jan. 31. Residents can reach out to me directly via phone or email,” said Jeanette Rebecchi, traffic program manager for the DPW ([email protected], 781-275-7605, ext. 4274).

The full study is posted on the department website’s project page: https://bedfordma.gov/768/Great-Road-Traffic-Optimization-Study 

“When the time comes to actually implement one of the large infrastructure changes, we will undertake a robust public engagement process regarding that specific project,” Rebecchi said in an email.

While putting in these measures may make things safer, they will not reduce the number of cars clogging this area. 2 things that are not mentioned that would reduce the number of cars are: opening some of the blockages caused by “paper street” sections,(eg Elmbrook) and better Public Transit options

Richard Donnelly of BHS has some radical ideas for the center of town and cutting down congestion. I would love to hear a more thorough position from him.
