Letter to the Editor: Downtown unsafe due to construction

by | Sep 20, 2022 | Letter to Editor

What is going on in downtown Hopkinton, and will it ever end? I literally cannot get to Center Trail for a run, grab something at CVS or walk my dogs safely. How could anyone possibly create an active construction site where it is so completely unsafe to walk? How is this incredibly dangerous situation not a liability? And in September, when schools have reopened? Why was it not done one side of the street at a time so that a safe passage was offered?

As taxpayers for over 35 years, we are sorely disappointed at the downtown disaster that has prevailed and persisted for over two years and continues to do so. The impact on local businesses has been catastrophic.

Oh, well, a “for sale” sign will soon be out front, and on to greener, much quieter pastures.

— Beth and Jeff Reynolds, Hopkinton
