A road less traveled in Southborough

SOUTHBOROUGH

Responding to pleas from neighbors, the Board of Selectmen will ask the state to prohibit trucks from using Latisquama and White Bagley roads -- which are both located right off Rte. 9 -- as throughways.

A truck count and map will be sent to MassHighway along with a letter outlining the request, Town Administrator Jean Kitchen said. Trucks will be asked to instead travel on Rte. 85, except for those that need to reach addresses on the two roads. All others face citations from the police department.

Residents of Latisquama Road presented their request to the board at a meeting late last month, Kitchen said. The narrowness and poor shape of the road were among their reasons for asking trucks to be excluded.
