Dec 9, 2019

Update: The Marion meeting has been moved to January 6 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Sippican Elementary School at 16 Spring St.

Officials are seeking feedback on Route 6 ahead of potential improvements at two public meetings. 

The Southeastern Regional Planning and Economic Development District is wrapping up a study of the section of Rte. 6 stretching from High Street in Wareham to Rte. 240 in Fairhaven. 

Included in that approximately 13 mile long section are six signalized intersections and many businesses, homes, and institutions.

The agency will be hosting two meetings to present traffic analysis and potential improvements and to receive feedback from those who use the road.

Both meetings will include the same information.

One will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 12, at the Center Elementary School at 17 Barstow St. in Mattapoisett. 

The second will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 6, at the Sippican Elementary School at 16 Spring St. in Marion.

Both locations are accessible to people with disabilities and are on the GATRA Wareham-New Bedford Connection’s route.
