I'm surprised nothing was reported at the intersection of routes 138 and 106. This is such a dangerous intersection for anyone trying to make a left turn. I have seen several accidents here over the years. I cannot believe it hasn't occurred to anyone to put a turn signal here or at least coordinate the lights so that each side has a fair amount of time to proceed through the intersection. Are they waiting for a fatality to occur here? I just hope it's not me and my children!

Cynthia, The redesign of that intersection is already underway. It is a state project. Check in with Town Hall for more specific details.

Here is a story from last year about the redesign. Obviously, Foundry and Prospect is already completed. http://easton-ma.patch.com/articles/town-considers-traffic-light-options-at-dangerous-intersections
