What's Up With The Traffic Backups Lately on Billerica Road?
Welcome to our latest Patch Answers.
Anyone driving through the town center knows that traffic can be particularly difficult, especially during peak hours, but recently that traffic has spilled off onto Billerica Road with a police detail limiting portions of the road to only one lane.
One Chelmsford Patch reader e-mailed us asking what was going on, and we found out what folks living in the area found out in the mail.
National Grid is installing gas pipes along Billerica Road near town hall and on streets just south of town hall (Summer Street, Perham Street, Plum Street, Hildreth Street) as well as on Wilson Street and further down on Billerica Road near the center.
Construction will likely continue until approximately Oct. 13 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Mondays through Saturdays.
