Of the 13 Eastham intersections identified in 2020 as needing safety improvements, draft improvement plans are now ready for two: the Bridge Road and Herring Brook Road intersection and the one at Nauset Road and Old Orchard Road.
Both plans would create more of a 90-degree left or right turn at the intersections.
“The older intersections, where you’re merging, are more dangerous,” said Town Administrator Jacqui Beebe during Monday’s select board meeting. The idea is to make it clearer who has to stop, she said. “Road design has changed a lot.”
One, if not both, of the improvement projects would be in the capital plan for construction in fiscal 2025, Beebe said.
The select board, with recommendations from various town departments including the police, will be asked to decide which two intersections of the remaining 11 to tackle next.
Beebe said her idea is to design two intersections each year and complete all 13 within six years.
The board is expected to take up the issue at its next meeting. —Linda Culhane
