LETTER: Neighborhood Advocates For and Receives Stop Signs

FRAMINGHAM – Like many residential streets in Framingham, traffic on Warren Road has been an on-going concern for residents.

The rate of traffic, speed, and accidents continue to increase in frequency and in intensity. Specific houses face recurring property damage, and above all, pedestrian safety is at risk.

Warren Road enjoys a lot of foot traffic because of the schools (McCarthy Elementary School, Fuller Middle School, and MassBay Community College), bus stops, and Learned Pond. It is a beautiful residential neighborhood.

The neighbors of Warren Oaks, along with District 7 Councilor Margareth Shepard, reached out to the Traffic Commission and then City Council, requesting a high-risk intersection to become a four-way stop.

A traffic study was conducted and found the need for a four-way stop to be justified.

As of May 9th, the intersection of Warren Road, Dennison Avenue, Prindiville Avenue, and Shawmut Terrace is now a four-way stop.

Thank you to the Traffic Commission and to City Council – specifically City Council Chair Dennis Giombetti oversaw each step of the process and continually kept the neighbors informed.

This is what happens when people come together and advocate on behalf of their neighborhood.

Thank you,

Nicole Doak

Warren Road
