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.
