A pedestrian bridge?

Dear Editor:

My wife and I always stop numerous times at various stores in Wiscasset during our annual vacation to the Boothbay region. I recently read in the Boston Globe about the proposed streetscape changes to improve traffic flow. The proposal may improve flow somewhat, but at the expense of access to businesses.

I don’t see a significant improvement to traffic flow unless something is done to alleviate vehicles stopping at the street crossing at Red’s. Has there been any consideration of a pedestrian bridge near Red’s, over Route 1?

With all the summer foot traffic, this would alleviate cars stopping to allowing people to cross Route 1.
