With inclement weather upon us we want to remind residents that there is a public street parking ban in effect throughout the winter. No vehicles should be parked on a public way, if a vehicle is on a public way during a snowstorm and is blocking the towns ability to plow the roads the vehicle is subject to being towed at the owners expense. Thank you for your help in making it easier for our town highway to do their jobs and clear our roads.
Public street parking ban
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.
