Transport ministry to address dangerous Ayer’s Cliff intersection

By Michael Boriero, Local Journalism Initiative

Ayer’s Cliff residents can breathe a sigh of relief after the Ministère des Transports et de la Mobilité durable (MTQ) announced it will temporarily address the intersection where Route 141 meets Route 208, but permanent work won’t be completed until next spring.
According to MTQ spokesperson Émilie Lord, the department will be installing new signage to make the intersection safe. This decision comes nearly two weeks after a car accident involving at least one overturned vehicle occurred overnight nearby the dangerous intersection.
“Existing crosswalks on Routes 141 and 208 will be relocated at the intersection. Stops on both approaches to Route 141 will be added, along with an ‘all-way’ sign. This sign will also be added to the existing stop sign on Route 208,” Lord said in a written statement Wednesday.
