Our view: Seabrook wise to limit 'big box' traffic snarls

(Continued)

Seabrook planners are considering a concept of downscaled zoning for the northern stretch of Route 1 in town. It would prevent the construction of more big box stores to the north of the busy Route 107 intersection. Instead, the zoning would encourage smaller stores and residential development, both of which will draw far fewer cars than a big shopping center.

Granted there is not a tremendous amount of space left for development along the northern end of Seabrook’s section of Route 1. However, it’s in Seabrook’s best interest to make sure that its vital gateway on Route 107 doesn’t become a Yogi Bera nightmare. It doesn’t take a lot of cars to bring traffic to a standstill.
