Newton Alderman voted last  night to approve DPW Commissioner David Turocy’s request to return the recently reconfigured, controversial intersection of Centre and Cypress Streets back to the original design, Wicked Local’s Jim Morrison reports.

But at least a few aldermen seemed to be doing so reluctantly…

“I’m struggling with this,” said [Ted] Hess-Mahan.  ”I want to do the right thing. It’s with heavy heart that I have to vote on this. It shakes your confidence in your vote when there’s so much you don’t know.

and this from Susan Albright…

“The planning that’s going into this change is as bad as the planning that got us into this in the first place.  I don’t see why we should do it. I’m going to vote for safety and vote against it.”

and this…

 “I voted against this in committee and I continue to be extremely unhappy with the process, said Alderman [Deb] Crossley.  “It’s just bad, bad. There’s just no good side to this story. I hope I’m not making a mistake here.”
