FRAMINGHAM – Selectmen unanimously approved a stop sign last night, October 17, for the Oaks Road neighborhood.
Residents in the neighborhood had come before the Framingham Traffic and Roadway Safety Committee about vehicles not stopping on Kittredge Road, as it intersects with Oaks Road.
This is an angled intersection, where people are likely to coast through it, explained the Town Engineer.
It is a secondary road and it does not seem unreasonable to install a stop sign, according to the Town Engineer.
Residents were worried that drivers, who are unfamiliar with the area, may feel like they have the right of way on Kittredge Road.
Framingham Police noted the intersection has a “very low” crash rate.
The Framingham Traffic and Roadway Safety Committee had recommended the stop sign to Selectmen, as the Committee had voted unanimously to approve the installation.
