Safety Note: New Crosswalks and Sidewalks

August 26th, 2005 by Adam

Welcome back,

You have probably noticed that Route 175A (Holderness Road) and the intersection at 175A and Main Street have changed over the summer. Construction continues at a brisk pace and will continue for quite some time.

Therefore, several changes have been made to crosswalks and sidewalks for your safety. A diagram is available at www.plymouth.edu/news/pdf/crosswalk.pdf

1. There is a new sidewalk on the south side of 175A from the Facilities Service Building to Main Street, and a freshly marked and lit crosswalk at the Facility Services Building. Please use this new sidewalk when walking to and from the Holderness campus. The new crosswalk allows for safer crossing of 175A between the sidewalk and the PE Center.

2. On Main Street, there is a new crosswalk connecting the east and west sides of Main Street (at the corner of Samaha’s) and a new walkway across the corner lot at High and Main Streets. [ The crosswalk on the north side of the intersection has been removed and the north sidewalk has been closed. ] The new crosswalk accesses the new sidewalk on 175A. The new walkway across 140 Main Street was added for quicker access to and from High Street right to the new crosswalk.

Representatives from NH DOT, the University, and the Towns of Plymouth and Holderness have worked together to ensure that you can get safely across Main Street and the bridge to the PE Center and parking lots quickly. Please use these sidewalks and crosswalks for your safety and the safety of others.
