Berlin Announces Traffic Pattern Changes at Broad Street and Harrison Avenue
(October 13, 2020) — The Town of Berlin Public Works Department will be installing traffic control devices at the corner of Broad Street and Harrison Avenue to direct westbound traffic turning from Broad Street onto Harrison Avenue. Orange and white bollards will be installed to improve safety and visibility at the corner as well as to keep road traffic off of the private property at that corner.
“Currently, some vehicles are traveling across the corner of the former Berlin Farm Supply (Southern States) parking area,” explained Town Administrator Jeff Fleetwood. “When this happens, they are actually driving across private property, which is intended to be developed into a parking lot for the business at that corner.”
These improvements will make the corner much more visible to traffic and will lessen the amount of wear-and-tear to the private property. Installation is expected to be complete by the end of the week.
