Pomeroy Village Intersection Improvements

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Town of Amherst has secured a $1.5 million grant to make significant improvements to the public way in Pomeroy Village Center - an area defined by the intersection of West Street (Rt 116), Pomeroy Lane, and West Pomeroy Lane. The improved intersection will seek to enhance pedestrian, cyclist, and driver safety and add to the vitality of this growing village center.

The Pomeroy Village Center area is home to many residents, offices, retail spaces, schools, restaurants, and nearby to Hampshire College to the south. Route 116 is an important north-south thoroughfare in the town and is traversed by many commuters every day. With a diversity of groups using and travelling through this area, hearing from the public is essential in shaping the collective vision for this intersection re-design.

We are still in the early design stages for this project and are seeking community input. Please make your voices heard!

Project Update: On May 28, 2021, the Town Council voted to support the construction of a single-lane roundabout which incorporates the suggested safety features outlined in memoranda provided by the Disability Access Advisory Committee and Transportation Advisory Committee which can be found under "Important Links" to the right.
