Beta Engineering was correct – Big F #Lynnfield

November 8, 2015

Beta Engineering was correct. The intersection at Market Street is a Big F at times. Saturday evening from 4:50 till 5:30 it took at least 4 min to move from the end of Alexandra through the first light. Total of 1,000 feet.

There didn’t appear to be any accidents. Saw the same situation when I returned about 45 min later.

We should remember this in the future when we are told traffic will be improved. We were told the intersection would go from F to C.

Thank you,
Wally
