Council to request additional study of traffic in Marlowe-Falling Waters area

April 18, 2013

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Berkeley County Councilman Jim Whitacre asked fellow council members Thursday to endorse a letter to state highway officials requesting additional study of traffic conditions in the area of U.S. 11 and Grade Road in the Marlowe-Falling Waters, W.Va., area.

There were no objections to Whitacre’s request, which came after area residents voiced concerns about the need for a traffic signal at the intersection at Monday’s county planning commission meeting about the impact of a proposed 170-lot residential development off Grade Road.

A representative for the proposed Bella Vista subdivision told the planning commission that the project’s impact on traffic, stormwater runoff and other environmental concerns had been taken into consideration in designing the project.
