It is probably something that needs to be looked at in the near future. However, dealing with the amount of people that come up here in the course of tourist season and others in the Conway, N.H., area, fatalities are very low. it would appear that maybe the local sheriff or the police department in that area should put new posts in or reduce the speed limit in that area which would make more sense and have a sign that says, strictly enforced radar.

Route 16 should be made into an interstate…all the way to Gorham where it can connect with Route 2 into Maine! With the work that Maine has done on Route 2 to Portland it has greatly reduced the travel time from 3 1/2 hours of my youth to just under 2 hours. Widening Route 16 will greatly improve the economic development here in the Great North Woods!
