Beverly mayor: Job figures sound

Predicts up to 7,500 jobs on Brimbal Ave.

(Continued)

The first part of the hearing on Sept. 3 drew a large crowd, with the overwhelming majority of the speakers against the plan due to increased traffic the plaza would generate.

Scanlon is pushing for the rezoning in order to begin the first phase of the project. That would include moving the connector road, installing roundabouts at both ends of the connector, widening a portion of Brimbal Avenue, and putting traffic lights at the corner of Brimbal and Herrick Street Extension.

The second phase would involve building a bridge over Route 128 to Dunham Road in order to take traffic off Brimbal Avenue and improve access to the North Shore Music Theatre and the undeveloped land.
