New fix for Amherst road
> AMHERST – On Monday night, Town Administrator Jim O’Mara told selectmen and Merrimack Road resident Kevin Dadoly that he and Department of Public Works Director Bruce Berry have come up with another plan to fix the road’s sight lines.
Dadoly and his neighbors went to the board’s last meeting in July saying they were unhappy about the town’s decision to drop plans to bring up the level of the road near their houses to correct what they describe as a serious safety problem.
Vehicles have gone off the road and the sight lines don’t allow the residents to exit their driveways safely.
O’Mara said they would leave the road’s base alone and deal with the area in front of the neighbors’ properties, a solution he called "a solid middle ground that creates a win-win."
Selectmen said the project should be done this season so the residents don’t have to face another winter, when piled snow makes the sight lines worse.
