Of roundabouts, rotaries and a proposal that went nowhere

By Dean Shalhoup - Senior Staff Writer | Jan 15, 2022

A sketch that appeared with the September 1947 Telegraph story on a Nashua man's proposal to create a rotary atop Library Hill gives an idea of what it may have looked like. At the bottom is Library Hill, the first right turn shown is Lock Street, the left hand turn is the start of Amherst Street; Concord Street goes off to the right; the street that runs off Amherst Street at upper left is Abbott Street; and the circle in the middle would be a newly configured Soldiers and Sailors Monument, around which all traffic would revolve.
