[ARCHIVED] North Amherst Intersection Project


The North Amherst Intersection project has been posted to the Town of Amherst's website.

For several years, the Town has contemplated making changes to this intersection. The intersection is actually the intersection of five roads, Montague Road (State maintained), Sunderland Road, Meadow Street, Pine Street and North Pleasant Street. In the first Pioneer Valley Planning Commission report of the “Top 100 Dangerous Intersections in the Valley,” this was the only intersection maintained by the Town to make this list.

Over the years of studying the intersection, small changes have been made to make it work better but they have failed to make a significant impact due to the growing traffic flow. The decision was made to make some physical changes to the area.

At the next Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) meeting on May 22nd, plans have been made to discuss this project further.  Details are forthcoming.
