With roadwork underway on what will eventually be Stowe’s first traffic light causing some stop-and-go traffic on the northern outskirts of the village and with the memories of hours-long resort-bound traffic jams last winter still fresh as a powder day, Stowe town officials have agreed to spend $80,000 on a comprehensive traffic evaluation.

The selectboard at its most recent meeting approved the funding, which will come from the town’s undesignated capital fund, a funding source separate from the budget the town must raise from taxes every year, largely funded by proceeds from the town’s local option tax.
