Traffic & Parking

All of us who live in Hingham know that the intersections at Ward and Cushing and Ward and High Streets (already marked a dangerous intersection) are inadequate NOW. With up to 10 times the amount of use, traffic will increase dramatically as well, often in peak after-work hours and on weekend mornings when it’s already non-stop.

We are concerned about parking and provision for emergency response. The high level of usage means that often four teams will need to be accommodated. There is no provision for bus parking.

At this point, as has been outlined in the peer review, the definition of exactly how the fields will be used is not well documented.
