      Swansea looks to fix dangerous intersection

      Swansea selectmen have three options in mind to fix a dangerous intersection in their town.

      Swansea selectmen have three options in mind to fix a dangerous intersection in their town.

      Traffic studies listed 29 accidents at the Bark Street, Buffinton Street and Stevens Road intersection over a three-year period, from 2008 to 2011.

      Selectman Jim Kern told NBC 10 News the board is looking at putting traffic signals at the intersection, building a roundabout, or an offset roundabout. The later reduces the sharpness of the roundabout curve.

      Kern says selectmen plan to hold a neighborhood meeting, possibly in September,{} to review the options.
