Photo: Plans for the new Crescent connector beginning at Park St, passing through Maple St, and connecting after the soon to be pedestrian portion of Main St.
Nobody would be surprised to hear that Five Corners in Essex has an intersection state performance rating of an “F”. In fact, many would be in support of that grade due to the numerous hours we’ve all wasted sitting at one of the lights there over the past years. Planning for how to combat this has been going on for years, and now there is something to show for it: The Crescent Connector Bypass. The bypass would start before Five Corners on Park Street, pass through Maple Street, and connect to Main Street, the end of which is being converted to a walking street. This would ultimately turn Five Corners into “Four Corners” and it would create a pedestrian street (much like Burlington’s Church Street although a bit shorter) in the section of Main Street/Route 15 out front of Martone’s Market & Deli and Fiori Bridal Boutique.
