BANGOR, Maine — A city council committee has recommended making Clinton Street a one-way road in a bid to alleviate traffic congestion at the busy intersection of Hammond Street and Ohio Street.

With a single dissenting vote, the council’s Infrastructure Committee recommended this week eliminating two-way traffic on Clinton Street, the intersection’s fifth leg. High Street intersects with Hammond across from Ohio.

If approved by the City Council, traffic on Clinton would flow only away from the busy intersection toward Union Street, eliminating the Clinton Street traffic signal at the intersection.

City Engineer John Theriault told the committee Clinton Street has low traffic volume and that eliminating the signal would allow more time for the flow of traffic on Hammond Street and Ohio Street, making the intersection more efficient and safer.

Over the past three years, he said, there have been 10 crashes at the intersection. That’s short of the Maine Department of Transportation definition of a high-crash location, which would be eight crashes per year at that site.

“It’s not a high-crash location right now, but it’s getting there,” Theriault said.

City councilor Gibran Graham cast the only dissenting vote, noting that city officials had not yet discussed the proposal with property owners on the street and the only business on the street, Domino’s Pizza.

“I think we’re doing a disservice to not have conversations with the property owners before we vote on it,” he said.

Graham also voiced concern that making the street a one-way road could create a dangerous situation if motorists travel the wrong way out of habit.

“We’re going to see a lot more people probably cause potential disaster by going the wrong way even if it’s signed,” he said.

Theriault noted that potential businesses may appreciate the change because it would allow for added on-street parking.

The potential change comes as part of a proposed $282,351 project to update traffic signal equipment at the intersection and modify curbs to improve the flow of traffic.

In other matters, Theriault presented to the committee paving and sewer projects he expects to be completed this year through a combination of city and MDOT funds:

— Ongoing safety improvements on Main Street from Cedar Street to Dutton Street, including a new sidewalk, street lighting, a pedestrian actuated crosswalk and landscaping.

— Resurface Main Street from Cedar Street to Dutton Street once safety improvements are completed.

— Complete construction of right-turn lane at Hogan Road and Stillwater Avenue and construction of right-turn lane at Hogan Road and Bangor Mall Boulevard.

— Resurface Broadway from Husson Avenue to Pushaw Road and from Stillwater Avenue to Center Street. Projects include a minor widening at Griffin Road and Grandview Avenue to improve turn lanes as well as drainage improvements and sidewalk improvements to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

— Resurface Union Street from Hammond Street to the Joshua Chamberlain Bridge.

— Resurface Hammond Street from Union Street to Ohio Street.

— Install approximately 600 feet of sewer line from the pump station at Odlin Road to the Days Inn.

— Upgrade approximately 600 feet of sewer line along Davis Court and First Street.

— Sewer upgrades to Middle Street and Cross Street.

Theriault told the committee he anticipates all of the projects will be completed by the end of the summer.

Meanwhile, Public Works Director Dana Wardwell presented an initial paving list for city-funded projects left over from last year and funded in the current budget that he expects to complete this summer.

City Manager Cathy Conlow said there is approximately $850,000 in the proposed paving budget for fiscal 2016, which begins July 1, and that a new list of local paving projects will be completed before adoption of the budget.

Theriault said a second public information meeting for the ongoing Broadway corridor study will be at 7 p.m. Thursday in council chambers at City Hall. The study is part of a MDOT effort to reduce crashes on the busy span.
