Blue Ribbon traffic panel to recommend 3 TM articles


The Blue Ribbon Traffic Committee plans to submit three articles onto the 2016 town meeting warrant. The first article proposes a synchronization study of the downtown traffic lights. The second calls for preliminary engineering work on the intersection at Randolph and Washington streets, and the third proposes additional solar and crosswalk signs around town.

The committee also welcomed Police Chief Ken Berkowitz to its meeting last week to discuss traffic enforcement issues. During the meeting, Berkowitz revealed that veteran CPD Officer Don Wolffe, who currently serves as the department’s traffic enforcement officer, plans to retire in early 2016. Berkowitz said Wolffe will be difficult to replace as he brings more than 30 years of experience to the role. The chief said he is willing to consider all traffic enforcement requests and complaints made by residents as long as the requests make sense and improve safety.

In other news, Berkowitz said he and Wolffe will ask the owner of the Dunkin Donuts in downtown Canton to move the store’s morning delivery from 9 a.m. to 6 a.m. in order to alleviate traffic congestion in the area. The shop is currently undergoing structural repairs and remains closed following a major traffic accident in late October.
