Tyngsborough bridge traffic

This morning, commuters travelling from the East side of the bridge experienced unusual delays going over the Tyngsborough bridge.  We contacted the state DOT and they responded and adjusted the timing of the lights for the time period of 6-9 am, Monday through Friday, we are hopeful that this will resolve excessive delays during morning rush hour.  Commuters should understand that there may always be some delays when travelling over the Tyngsborough bridge, especially during rush hour.   Along with the DOT we will continue to monitor traffic flow and make adjustments to the timing of the lights as necessary, however safety will remain the priority. 

Thank you.

changes to the Middlesex @ Tyngsborough bridge intersection

On Friday March 9th the State DOT is scheduled to make changes to the lighting at the intersection of Middlesex @ the  Tyngsborough bridge.  The change will impact the left turn signals on both sides of the intersection on Middlesex Road.  There will no longer be a blinking yellow light, the left turn signals will be a solid green left, yellow then solid red.  The timing of the solid green light will also change with additional time given to traffic taking left turns, the solid green left arrow will activate on average  twice the time it does now allowing more vehicles to pass through the intersection.

The work is scheduled to begin at approximately 10 am tomorrow (3/10) and last 1-2 hours, Tyngsborough officers will be assisting at the intersection during this time.  Officers’ will also be active monitoring this intersection after the changes are made.
