just a note on some road construction

which i believe is necessary (especially because of black and blue square) but is going to be a royal pain in the arse. i use the cvs pharmacy next to this location. it's already a nasty trip every time i have to make it, it will just be worse now.

Improvements begin on dangerous intersection
By HANNAH VAHL
Work has already begun to make safety improvements to a highly trafficked, dangerous intersection in town.


WEST HARTFORD - Work has already begun to make safety improvements to a highly trafficked, dangerous intersection in town.
The area where Park Road, Sedgwick Road and South Main Street meet has averaged 35 traffic accidents a year, one-third of which have involved injuries, according to Town Engineer David Kraus.
"The accident history has been really disturbing," he said. "This is a very worthwhile project for us to undertake."
Kraus estimates that with the addition of left-turn lanes to all three streets, those accidents should result in a 40-percent accident reduction - the same decrease seen when the intersection of Albany Avenue, King Philip Drive, and Trout Brook Drive was redone.
"We will have a better functioning intersection," said Town Manager Ron Van Winkle.
"People will take fewer chances, run fewer red lights. It will help in many ways."
Utilities at the intersection have already been relocated, and roadwork is expected to begin June 29 and end at the beginning of August, timed with a dip in traffic during school vacation.......
