FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham City Council unanimously approved Tuesday night, April 16, new stop signs, and a do not enter sign for the Gates Street and Salem End Raod intersection.
The Framingham Traffic Commission on February 26 voted favorably to install regulatory signage within the intersection of Gates Street and Salem End Road.
Last August, the Framingham Department of Public Works installed roadway markings and directional signs, in an effort to coordinate traffic flow thru the intersection pending permanent future improvements, said Traffic Commission Chair Paul Barden, who is also the Deputy Director of the Framingham DPW.
Additional signage is recommended to complete the interim improvements, said Barden.
Approved Tuesday night was the installation of a:
- STOP sign at both ends of the connector road between Gates Street and Salem End Road
- STOP sign at Gates Street eastbound at Salem End Road
- Do Not Enter sign at Salem End Road at Gates Street
A legal notice was published in the local daily newspaper and the Traffic Commission submitted the ordinance to the City Council on March 20.
All rules and regulations promulgated by authorized vote of the Framingham Traffic Commission shall become effective on the 30th day following the day on which they are filed with the council, unless the council within such period by majority of the full council votes to reject said rule or regulation or has sooner voted to affirm it, according to the City Charter.
