A roundabout route for NA traffic
The Attleboro Sun Chronicle - 04/11/2013
A team of Northeastern University students has come up with a way to alleviate the traffic woes that plague the intersection of Routes 1, 1A and Elmwood Street – installing a roundabout.
The roundabout, which could be constructed within the existing roadway, would be near the junction of Park and North Washington streets. Cars would travel around the rotary and be delivered to a set of signals on Route 1, which would work in concert.
Sarah Casey, a member of the Northeastern University student team who is also a North Attleboro resident, knows first-hand the difficulty negotiating the tricky Route 1 intersection.
