The BoS last Thursday discussed the work on the Old 109 intersection which is nearly complete. The issue is whether the intersection proposed to be a “T” intersection, is really a “T” and whether the design will truly keep vehicles from making rapid turns onto Old 109.
The intersection is on a state roadway so it has to be designed to handle a turn by a 50’ truck. To accommodate that, the opening to Old 109 had to have a bit of a radius.
KV Partners will have the surveyor stake out the edges of where the pavement will go so that we can get a better feel for whether it will meet it’s intended purpose. Optionally, KV Partners could go back to the NH DOT and ask for a design change eliminating or reducing the radius, but Ray Korber of KV Partners was not optimistic that it would be successful, nor would it be the optimal way to design the intersection.
In any event, the sub-contractor for the paving part of the project is a little behind schedule, but we do expect that before too long the project will be completed.
