    The delay is excessive for the left hand turn signal at the intersection of Billerica Road and Mill Road. This is a particular problem late at night when there is no traffic. In the past, after rush hour, this turn signal was set to change when a vehicle pulled up to the light. Please return the signal to this setting.

    I would like to report a very dangerous intersection at the end of Mill road. When turning onto mill rd from 129 there are two turning lanes. The right lane is for going up on Elisabeth Drive and the left lane is for continuing down Mill rd. On a daily basis I see near accidents and have already seen a few accidents in the span of just over a year. People in the right lane always swerve into the left lane. At least once a week I myself am almost crashed into and today I was run off the road. I firmly believe that if there were clear lane markings and signage that this could be resolved. I am surprised that there are not serious accidents in this spot every day and it would be in the best interest of the town and it’s resi to fix this.

    Thank you,

    There are 3 construction projects going on surrounding my neighborhood. The Russel Mill construction/housing, the Turnpike Road housing, and the completion of construction at the end of Mill Rd/129. One, if not all, of these sites is consistently starting work before 7am, which is not allowed by law. I can’t tell you which one, but I can constantly hear it. This noise ordinance needs to be enforced, especially with 3 construction projects in one area. I’m sure they’ll tell you they are only starting equipment or only doing this or that, but the noise waking me and my kids is completely unnecessary. We will not spend all summer listening to construction noise that violates Town law. Please enforce this.

    Hello, this is actually a request to have a street light installed. At the corner of Vincent road and empire street going into the cul de sac it is very dark. There is no light until you get well into the cul de sac. I’ve noticed how dark it is coming home from work and especially noticed last night during Halloween. The kids didn’t want to come up the hill. It was too dark and didn’t look like there was anything on the other side of the hill. There is a pole right at the corner which would be perfect for a light.

    3 Brick Kiln Road Chelmsford, Massachusetts - Chelmsford
    There are multiple very deep and unavoidable potholes on Brick Kiln Rd between Carleton and Carlisle streets . There used to be one causiing you to drive on the opposite side of the road to avoid it. Now there is another larger one on the opposite side of the road, and no matter where you drive you get one of them. They are hazardous. Thanks in advance.

    When making a left turn from Mill Road on to 129, the traffic light has trouble identifying when a car is in the left turn lane. Two days in a row, the first car(note that it was a relatively small car) in the left-hand turn lane was partially in the center lane(his two right wheels were just over the line), but his car was 90% in the left turn lane. Both times, the traffic signal never identified that there were cars waiting to turn left, and we never received a green light. After about 4 cycles without a green, the car simply ran the red light, and then the signal turned green during the next cycle because I was in the middle of the left lane.
    While this is clearly the driver's fault, the traffic light sensor should probably be better at identifying cars in the left lane to prevent the dangerous situations it has caused.

    There is a bunch of ice that has formed at the bottom of Turnpike Road with its intersection with Mill Road. I believe it is due to water from the construction at the water tank. The temperatures are freezing now in water is going to freeze. If water is going to continue to come from that construction area then sand needs to be put down. This was a very dangerous coming down Turnpike Road. I was traveling well below the speed limit and almost slid into a police cruiser.
