A special session of the Aldermanic Committee on Public Safety, Health and Traffic was held for anyone who wishes to voice their opinion of the traffic Monday.

As a result from that session, aldermen voted to recommend lifting gates on Gold and Sewall streets along with restoring President Road to two-way traffic, the Union Leader reported.

Committee members voted 3-1 to these traffic changes, along with having a traffic study conducted in the area through the end of May.

The recommendation is scheduled to go before the full Board of Mayor and Aldermen for a vote Tuesday when board members meet at 7:30 p.m. at City Hall.
