Westford Rd. / Dunstable Rd. intersection

The work to realign the Westford Road / Dunstable Rd. intersection is complete.  The right lane coming from the highway toward Westford is for straight and right turn only, the left lane is for left turn only.  We are aware that there was a problem with the traffic signals this morning which caused Dunstable Rd. traffic to only have a few seconds of a green light each cycle.  We are told that problem has been repaired and the lights are functioning correctly.
