Hazardous waste day May 3rd

This Saturday May 3rd is Hazardous waste day at the Tyngsborough Highway Department from 9am – 1pm.    Based on traffic back-up on Kendall Rd. last year, which resulted in numerous complaints and also presents a public safety hazard, there have been some adjustments made.  After consultation between the Police Chief, Highway Department Foreman, and the Health Dept.  the parking lot will be expanded by allowing residents who are waiting in line to wrap around the back of the Highway Department rather than wait and pull to the side of the road on Kendall Rd. causing a traffic hazard.    There will be Highway Dept. personnel on scene who will guide residents on where to go in the parking lot, there will be a police detail at the entrance of the Highway Dept. who will not allow traffic to park on Kendall Rd if the Highway Dept. parking lot becomes overloaded, please do not arrive prior to 8:30 am as Highway personnel need time to prepare the parking lot for the 9 am start.   People will be asked to return at a later time or park in the park & ride lot until there is  room in the Highway Dept lot.  Please see the brochure from the Health Department below, thank you for your cooperation.

Massapoag Road now re-opened

Massapoag Road, which has been closed in the area of #142 due to flooding and a road collapse a few weeks ago, is now open.  The roadway has been repaired and a base coat of asphalt has been applied, a final layer will be applied on Friday May 2nd which will cause a temporary shut down of the roadway in that area.  The repair included the installation of a new drainage pipe that goes under the road which is significantly larger than the previous one which had rusted and broke, leading to the flooding and collapse of the roadway.  Thank you to the residents in the area for their patience during this situation.
