Modification of roadway Westford Rd. @ Dunstable Rd.

Westford Road At Dunstable Road (Flint’s Corner), Traffic Pattern Modifications | Tues. Nov. 4th

Modification of the Westford Road at Dunstable Road intersection will begin today, November 4th at 8:00 AM.

The work will include re-striping the Westford Road southbound approach to accommodate a left-turn lane and a through/right-turn lane (vs. a left-turn/through travel lane and a right-turn lane) and modifying the traffic signal system and associated signs and pavement markings to reflect the lane use changes. These changes will be consistent with the Public Hearing held by the Board of Selectmen earlier this year.

The work is anticipated to take 1-2 days, weather depending. Please expect delays and seek alternate routes where possible.

We anticipate that this change will improve traffic flow as there will be a dedicated left turn lane for the significant amount of trucks and other vehicles that turn left off of Westford Road onto Dunstable Road.  Traffic going straight through the intersection will no longer be delayed waiting in the left turn lane., the right lane will be dedicated to through traffic and taking a right onto Dunstable Road.

Threats at Lowell Vocational High School

The Tyngsborough Police Department is investigating two separate bomb threats made against Greater Lowell Technical High School this week.

Early Monday morning, before the start of school, a student reported a bomb threat had been written on a bathroom wall. School officials and the Tyngsborough Police Department School Resource Officer investigated and quickly identified a student believed to be responsible for scrawling the threat. The parents of the student were contacted, and the school took disciplinary action against the student.

Today, a second bomb threat was found on another bathroom wall in the school at about 1 p.m.Police were called in, and the building was evacuated out of an abundance of caution. The school was searched by Tyngsborough Police and Fire, with help from the Lowell Fire Department. The threat was determined to be a hoax, and classes resumed.

The incident remains under investigation. No students were hurt during either incident.
