It's been a few weeks now since the major traffic changes were made to Main Street to reduce it down to two lanes, install two medians and create designated turning lanes.
The main goal for the changes was to improve safety both for pedestrians and motorists on the busy connector road with Salem and points east.
While city officials, Main Street business owners, police and others involved with the project say it is much safer and an overall improvement, there has been a boisterous outcry from residents and commuters, many of whom say the traffic is now much worse.
The vast majority of those comments, which Peabody Patch readers voiced on past news stories and via social media, do not mention the safety aspect, and instead criticize the changes as poorly executed and planned out, and a waste of time and money by the city.
It's worth noting that the timing on the traffic lights along the street will continue to be tweaked to help with the traffic flow.
So what do you think after driving down Main Street for a few weeks now? Is the traffic OK, bad, horrible? Do you feel like you can safely cross the street or take a left-hand turn?
Have you stopped using Main Street because of the new changes?
