Mattapoisett to add three-way stop sign near bike path connector

Oct 5, 2021

MATTAPOISETT — Bikers getting some early rides in on the “Marion connector” section of the Mattapoisett bike trail will be able to breathe a little easier soon as the Select Board voted to add a three-way stop sign to the intersection of Industrial Drive and Bay Club Drive, near the start of the connector.

“This seems very reasonable as we’ve got bicycle traffic over there now,” said Select Board Member Jordan Collyer.

Town Administrator Mike Lorenco agreed and added that they’ve had “a couple close calls over there” including while a safety officer was observing the area for potential safety concerns.

“I think it’s a safety thing that has to be addressed immediately,” said Select Board Member Jodi Bauer. “So I’m all for it.”
