Amesbury council to vote on traffic study

At its Tuesday, Dec. 12 meeting, the Amesbury City Council is expected to vote on whether to approve $40,000 toward a traffic study for an area that includes Interstate 495, Route 150, and South Hunt Road. With several developments in the area and more proposed, including a 420,000-square-foot ice hockey complex scheduled to break ground in the spring, Mayor Ken Gray proposed expanding on the study, being conducted for rinks developer Global Property Development Corp. “There’s a lot of development in that particular part of town,” said Gray. “We may need to reengineer traffic flow. We want to keep traffic flowing, and this will help make sure it’s done in advance.” The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. in City Hall.
