Town officials suggested that the BOS were responsible and able to modify town roads under the 1st 2 articles (Click Here)
BOS said that a DOT traffic study would be needed.  This intersection was included in the 2011 report.
After reviewing the Route 1 Corridor plan done in Nov of 2011; Dow lane was mentioned as a safety concern in a number of places due to the skewed angle of the road causing limited sight lines. It was suggested that the roadway be closed and if deemed necessary to keep open that the intersection be moved and angled to 90 degrees.
On page 75 here you can see the aerial photo showing the road closure:   Click Here
