Redesigning the entry experience to the Village of Pennacook was an important step in helping residents of this Concord, NH village reach their goal of defining a village with a clear identity. Two scenarios were explored each with the end goal of de-emphasizing the dominance of auto traffic–a signalized intersection and a roundabout. Both concepts offer strategies for slowing traffic, improving interesection legibility and overall safety. A new clarity for circulation helps to reinstate the primacy of the pedestrian at the village core. Based on a successful public particulpation effort with Ironwood’s team partner, CMA Engineers, Inc and City Staff, the roundabout alternative was choosen. Ironwood, with team collaboration, will translate the approved concept into a full design with complete construction drawings including: streetscape layout and materials; landscaping and street tree planting; lighting layout; construction details; sections; notes; and technical specifiications.
