Oak Bluffs will stick with a new one-way road configuration on Dukes County avenue through the summer, the town roads and byways committee said this week.

Last fall, the town changed part of the narrow road into a one-way street on a trial basis, citing safety concerns with the two lanes of traffic, parking and pedestrian use. Some neighbors say the change has shifted the safety problem by increasing traffic on surrounding residential streets.

At a meeting Wednesday attended by about 20 residents and business owners, committee members said they wanted to stay the course and wait for traffic data being collected by the Martha’s Vineyard Commission, though they acknowledged neighborhood concerns.

“We’re trying to create a nice flow here,” committee member and selectman Michael Santoro said. “I’d like to see it stay that way for the summer.” He added that after the summer, perhaps after Columbus Day, the situation would be reevaluated.

The commission also discussed looking at adding sidewalks and crosswalks in the area.

“I’m really encouraged by this afternoon,” said Deirdre Bohan, a Winthrop avenue resident who has expressed concerns about increased traffic on her street. “I do feel that what I’m hearing is that we’ve been heard.”
