Weekly Question: What Wayland Road Most Needs Repaving or Repair?

The weekly question is back and we're turning our attention to Wayland's roads.

What road in Wayland bounces your car (and you) around the most? Which street causes you to tighten the seatbelt and grip the steering wheel a bit more tightly? Where is your "road less traveled" simply because you can't handle the condition of the pavement?

In April, a letter from the office of Gov. Deval Patrick informed Wayland's Board of Selectmen that Chapter 90 funds to the tune of $474,762 had been granted to the town for Fiscal Year 2013. According to the Massachusetts Department of Transportation website, Chapter 90 grants are awarded to municipalities to reimburse documented expenditures related to "capital improvement projects for highway construction, preservation and improvement."

The funds are awarded based on a formula that looks at the number of road miles in a town, the population and the number of employees.

Given that at least some of Wayland's planned road projects are reimbursable, where would you most like to see those dollars spent? What road in Wayland is most in need of repair/repaving?

Jerry Swirsky I agree with Virginia. Everyone has been passing the buck on this road for years. I have lived on Griscom Rd. for 44 years. The condition of the road is very dangerous to all using it. I have had two tire blowouts using it traveling to my office at Wayland Village over the past two years, and refuse to travel on it any longer. The Road should be a Town priority because of the risk of an accident that could happen whether walking,driving, or riding a bike.

Definitely Pelham Island Road. Never been paved in the 20+ years my family has lived in Wayland. Terrible road conditions, tight curves some with trees that force drivers to veer into the left lane and one portion that has eroded creating a dangerous curve where conceivably a vehicle could fall down an embankment. Sudbury seems to understand the importance of keeping the road well maintained.
