Go West: Spring Street goes one way

  • 6 photos for sale Buy a Photo
  • NEWTON--The Town Council wanted to bring more people to downtown Newton and expedite traffic flow, so the town recently made its main thoroughfare one way. Despite some criticism and store owners and patrons being inconvenienced during the transition, Spring Street has come out the other side with a lot of thumbs up. The project began several weeks ago with state workers pestriping a block of Main Street next to the Newton Green. They proceeded to widen two left turn lanes and get rid of the single right-turn lane at the intersection. Once the state's work was completed, the town's project to repave Spring Street between Union Place/Madison Street and Main Street began, and Spring Street remained open to westbound traffic abate some delays while equipment was jockeyed around.
