There have been a couple of questions on the blog recently about who controls the timing of traffic lights in town (see the open thread here). To find out, I asked DPW Superintendent Karen Galligan.
Galligan said the DPW is responsible for most of the lights in town, with the notable exception of the ones on Route 9 which are controlled by MassHighway. If you thinking the timing of any of the lights is off, Galligan said the best thing to do is to contact the DPW. If the light is owned by the town, DPW will handle it directly, and if it’s owned by MassHighway, they’ll pass the feedback along to the right people.
