Town, WRC to host public discussion on Route 9-100 intersection

Originally published in The Commons issue #179 (Wednesday, November 21, 2012).



WILMINGTON—The winter season is just about upon us, and with that comes winter tourism and winter traffic.

One intersection that is particularly affected by seasonal influxes of traffic is the Route 9-100 intersection.

The town and the Windham Regional Commission (WRC) will hold a public meeting on Monday, Nov. 26 from 6 to 7:45 p.m. at the Wilmington Town Offices at 2 East Main St., to discuss the intersection.

The Route 9-100 intersection is the major gateway to the ski resorts of the Route 100 corridor, including Haystack and Mount Snow.

The town and the planning agency want to offer “those who live, work, and do business in the area a chance to discuss the current and historic effects of traffic associated with this intersection,” according to a press release.

“The goal is to look beyond vehicle counts and other statistics to hear from those who live and work in the area what the traffic means to them, and what changes might result in improvement,” the release continues.

“Does it affect the quality of life for residents? Does it help the downtown businesses? What suggestions do people have about ways to improve the current and future situation?”

“This meeting is really about having an open discussion,” says WRC Planner Cullen Meves. “This intersection is a critical one for a variety of reasons. We want it to function at the highest possible level for all who travel through it, or are affected by it in some way.”

For more information, contact Meves at cmeves@sover.net or 802-257-4547, ext. 108.
