6/19/2017: Traffic hearing for 4 way stop sign at intersection of Fairway/Waltham/Derby

Not sure how many times I’ve blogged about the intersection at Fairway/Waltham/Derby but it’s a lot you guys.  There have been over a dozen accidents at this intersection in the past 5 years. This was last January.

And this was an OUI last November.

Looks like the city might finally do something about.  A public traffic council hearing is scheduled for this Thursday (22nd) at 7pm at City Hall (room 211). Don’t go to room 212 there’s no meeting there. The council is looking at installing a 4 way stop sign. Your attendance and support is appreciated.

  1. When my children were at Franklin I met with the city with letters of support from the crossing guard and the principal of Franklin, a signed petition from everyone on this side of Waltham street whose children walked home from Franklin and on the other side of Waltham street whose children walked home from Day or North. I made up a poster showing how far a child would have to walk to cross Waltham Street at a light (the light was not yet installed on Crafts/Waltham). The response was that they did a traffic study and there was not enough traffic at that intersection to meet the state standards for a pedestrian walk signal. They did not offer the option of a 4/way stop sign. Instead they asked me to run for Alderman!! Good luck.
