090916 rsSouthborough – An article at the Oct. 18 Special Town Meeting will request that the Board of Selectmen close Flagg Road at the culvert near the road’s intersection with Route 9. If approved, traffic to and from the proposed 180-unit Chapter 40B project, Residences at Park Central, or any other development that is to be built near there, would be routed only onto the southwestern “stub” of Flagg Road and would not be able to access the northeastern part of the road beyond the closure point. In essence, this would block traffic from coming on and off Route 9 to Flagg Road and the development. A locked gate would be installed at the closure location to allow for emergency vehicles and school buses to go through.
