Sound off on Nonantum Road

REGION

Do you feel like you're taking your life in your hands when you travel parts of Nonantum Road?

Tomorrow night you can hear a state consultant's suggestions for the busy road, where three people have died since January.

The consultant recommends re-lining parts of the road to reduce it from four to two lanes. The state also wants to hear the public's ideas for the road, which straddles Newton, Watertown, and Allston-Brighton.

The Department of Conservation and Recreation hearing will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Watertown Library, 123 Main St.
A second public meeting is slated for Oct. 19 at Newton City Hall, 1000 Commonwealth Ave.
