Pepperrell Square Traffic Analysis
At the Traffic Safety Committee Meeting on September 22nd, the City Administrator had requested that the TSC consider the following: Pepperrell Square Pop Up Plaza: Traffic studies done over the summer to look at the amount of traffic using Pepperrell Square, have prompted the idea of a trial period for a pop-up plaza for a week in October (the week before the Harvest Festival). This will involve closing down the square to vehicle traffic, except deliveries, during certain early hours. (Joe Laverriere/Kevin Sutherland)
Several traffic studies have been conducted to improve the flow of traffic through out the City of Saco. Through these studies, it has been determined that the Pepperrell Square and Main Street intersection is not optimally moving traffic. Here you will find the proposal, data, and map of Pepperrell Square from a traffic study conducted by Thomas Errico, PE of T.Y. LIN INTERNATIONAL further exploring this issue.
One of the potential solutions identified by Thomas Errico was temporarily implementing a full or partial closure of Pepperrell Square to test the hypothesis that the elimination of traffic moving out of Pepperrell Square onto Main Street, would help reduce congestion and improve traffic flow. The traffic would be encouraged to move down Beach Street, extending the cycle for that light, and facilitating a protected turn onto Main Street at that intersection. The discussion of a pop-up plaza was incorporated to utilize the space during the temporary closure of that intersection, and draw people to this area to participate in events during the test week. By doing this, we had hoped to attract customers for the businesses already operating in this area, see if we can facilitate the incorporation of outdoor seating for your businesses, and add an attraction for citizens to enjoy.
This item was tabled by the Traffic Safety Committee at their meeting. As the second step, we would like to host a neighborhood/community meeting to get feedback and input in the City Hall Auditorium on Thursday, October 13th from 3:00 PM-5:00 PM. Using the information gathered during this meeting, the City Administrator will be in Pepperrell Square to meet with businesses and property owners on October 20th at either 9:00 AM, 2:00 PM, or 5:00 PM to discuss ways to alleviate the concerns identified.
A letter was sent to property owners, residents, and businesses in the Pepperrell Square area to get some feedback from the community. To find out more or get involved, please click here and complete a quick survey!
