Raymond Road Traffic Study

In response to complaints related to pedestrians crossing at Raymond Road, the city of Salem, in partnership with Salem State University, engaged Fay, Spofford and Throndike (FST) to do a study of pedestrian and vehicular traffic at the Raymond Road/Loring Avenue junction and the intersection of Broadway and Loring Avenue, along with traffic patterns on Raymond Road from Loring Avenue to Lafayette Street. The university shared the cost of the study with the city. The study sought to identify issues related to pedestrian and vehicular traffic and recommend solutions. Traffic counts were taken on Tuesday, March 1, in the afternoon, as Tuesdays are the busiest days for classes. Gary Hebert of FST presented his findings on the Raymond Road Pedestrian Traffic Study at the Salem State University Neighborhood Advisory Committee meeting on Monday, May 16, 2011.
