PLAINFIELD – Local officials will meet with the state Monday to discuss the town’s troubled intersection at Route 2 and Main Street.

For several years local officials have been trying to get the state to fix the intersection. The issues with the spot, where Main Street dips down into the village at a bend in Route 2 marked by a single blinking yellow light, stem from poor sight lines, and the slope down onto Main Street can be especially hazardous in winter due to ice and snow. The intersection also sits in Plainfield’s village, which is a designated historic district.

Representatives with the Agency of Transportation are scheduled to attend Monday’s Select Board meeting at the Town Hall to discuss possible fixes for the intersection and the issues those fixes may present.
