FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham Traffic Commission plans to catalogue and review all the traffic signs in the city.
Traffic Commission chair William Sedewitz said the City completed inventory checks, counting more than 7,000 road signs in Framingham, 4,000 of which are regulatory road signs.
Next, the City and the Traffic Commission plan to tackle evaluating whether each of the signs are in their right locations, and whether signs should be taken down or replaced with new signs.
At the next Traffic Commission meeting in July, the Commission plans to address speeding concerns at Potter Road and Brook Street with input from a consultant, and circle back to the plans to relocate or remove the crosswalk and median island located along Waverly Street.
The Commission also at its Tuesday night, June 22 meeting, reviewed its budget for fiscal year 2022, which begins July 1.
The Commission has a $64,000 budget, in addition to $150,000 that the Public Works Department requested for traffic calming.
Sedewitz noted member Maryann Flaherty resigned this past month from the Commission.
The Traffic Commission plans to re-organize and elect new leadership at its July meeting.
