The focus of the Wallace Road project is to increase safety by addressing issues regarding intersection sight distance, as well as safety for multi-modal traffic by increasing shoulder widths. Improving drainage along this coridor, which runs from North Amherst Road to New Boston Road, is also a point of emphasis on this project. In 2015 the Town completed sections of this project between New Boston Rd. and Ministerial Road and also between Benedictine Park and Nathan Cutler Road.
