    Hello. The traffic light sensor at the end of Mill Rd on Billerica Rd is not sensitive enough to trip in the presence of a bicycle. This necessitates me going though the red ilght every morning which, given the amount of traffic on 129, is not a very safe thing to do. Can the sensitivity be increased so that I can trip the light and pull out onto 129 safely?

  • 195 Mill Rd Chelmsford 01824, United States - Chelmsford
    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.

    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.

    Please note: the image I am attaching is from google maps and is simply to provide a visual reference of the lane in question

    Appears as though a truck dumped a fair amount of pavement on Mill Rd as you travel from Russell Mill parking lot heading north on the road and then again on Turnpike Road.

    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.
