August 29, 2016 - The official comment period for the public informational meeting has ended although comments can still be sent in. The meeting was successful with a significant turnout. We have received a number of comments since the meeting as well.

The two main concerns of the public based on the concerns voiced at the meeting and in received comments are:
  • The effect of the additional traffic on Main Street, despite the operational benefits of the proposed bumpouts
  • Concerns about the potential for obstruction of views toward the river due to the retaining walls at Washington Street
The Department is currently investigating modifications to the proposed concept to address these concerns while keeping with a low cost solution. Additional information will be forthcoming.
