Traffic studies have been a topic of conversation in the Town of Bow Mar for many years. Multiple studies have been done and traffic in the neighborhood has often been a topic of conversation. In 2010-2011 a professional assessment of the roadways in the Town was conducted and in 2013 the 2013 Road Study was performed.
The 2018/2019 Traffic Management Study is an attempt to finalize the discussion, and this page shares information about these efforts.
Following a July 11, 2018 Town Meeting focusing on the town's Traffic problems, the Town of Bow Mar hired Evans & Associates to conduct a traffic study. Initial results of the study were presented at a Town meeting held July 11, 2019. At this meeting Evans & Associates layed out a number of options to addressing the continuing traffic problems. The options were discussed and elaborated at Town meetings and a public survey was taken in September 2019. Based on the results of this survey and inputs from the Town of Bow Mar Trustees, Evans & Associates developed the November 2019 Final Traffic Study Report attached below.
The attached Traffic Study Summary Report produced by Bow Mar Trustees provides a history of activities and results of the traffic studies, public discussions and surveys.
