Amid the current discussions of traffic in Westford, we thought it would be helpful to make a report from the League’s Forum on traffic in Westford, written in January 2003. Comparing the solutions proposed then, to the problems and solutions being proposed following the most recent NMCOG traffic study in town highlights the continued changes to traffic patterns in town. If you are interested in the current traffic and parking issues in town, reading this report gives you additional history and insight into the challenges Westford faces dealing with increased traffic and development.
