Light Okayed for Bypass South End

    by Andrew Martin

    Local concerns over traffic congestion at the intersection of the Route 100 Alternate Truck Route, Historical Route 100, and the driveway for the Bishop John A Marshall School (BJAMS) appear to have been well founded. After completing a traffic study at the intersection the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) is now moving forward with plans to install a light at the intersection.
    According to VTrans’ Kevin Marshia a traffic study at the site of the intersection was conducted this spring before school let out. After analyzing the data from the study state officials now feel that a traffic signal at the intersection is warranted. Marshia added that at this point the project is in the very early planning stages. State officials have notified the town and local planning commission of the pending project and are planning to meet with representatives from BJAMS sometime in the near future to update them on the process.
    Moving forward VTrans officials will be seeking further input from the town of Morristown, Lamoille County Planning Commission (LCPC), and BJAMS on the project.
    “We feel that the town and LCPC will concur with our assessment that a light is needed,” Marshia stated, adding that along with seeking input the next step is for VTrans workers to begin planning and designing the light. He also explained that it will be unknown if any lane changes or similar alterations to traffic patterns at the intersection will be needed until after the final plans have been designed.
    At this point there is no official timeline for when the light could be installed. The project has to be designed and funding assigned before a final timeline is created. Marshia added that the earliest the signal could be installed would be the summer of 2016.
