The Select Board this week weighed solutions for the dangerous Central/Forest/Bridge Street intersection

HAVERHILL — The Select Board this week weighed solutions for the dangerous Central/Forest/Bridge Street intersection. The intersection has been the site of countless accidents, and board members agreed that safety improvements are needed. In the works is a quick fix, which would remove a turning lane in front of McDonald’s. Doing so would narrow the intersection and eliminate some cross traffic. The New Hampshire Department of Transportation has verbally approved the estimated $2,000 stopgap project, but the Select Board argued for stronger measures.
