MVC will host meeting on road improvements


The Martha’s Vineyard Commission (MVC) will host a public meeting about how to improve the Edgartown-Vineyard Haven Road on Wednesday, December 3, at 5 pm in the Edgartown Town Hall.

The challenge is to improve safety and scenic values while accommodating the traffic on this busy regional roadway. Possibilities of increasing vegetation, narrowing the roadway, improving the Shared Use Path (bike path), improving drainage, and starting with a section in Edgartown are up for discussion, according to a MVC press release.

Improvements to this road are on the 2015 and 2016 Martha’s Vineyard Transportation Improvement Program, which provides state and federal funding for transportation projects on the Island, according to the MVC.
