Letter: This detour is dangerous
The Route 3 southbound detour to Rumford Street is not working well. I have no objection to being detoured due to road work, but this detour is dangerous!
Every single time I have used the detour, the intersection at Penacook Street always has 4 cars, one in each lane, waiting to go through the intersection.
We all stop. We all lunge forward an inch or so, and then everyone waits, not knowing who should go first. It is just an accident waiting to happen!
There are no lights at this intersection and no police directing traffic for the duration of the detour.
