We apologize for the traffic delays yesterday resulting from multiple circumstances. During the day a water leak was discovered on Boston Post Road (RTE 20) where the pavement had risen approximately eighteen inches causing concern the integrity of the roadway. Safety concerns forced the closing of RTE 20 shortly after noon. Subsequent to RTE 20 being closed and as the evening commute commenced, Sudbury Public Safety Personnel responded to a motor vehicle accident with injury on Hudson Road. The accident involved a tractor trailer unit and a bicyclist who sustained what was initially thought to be life threatening injuries. This resulted in major traffic delays on yet another major commuting route through Sudbury as the patient was cared for and the follow up investigation ensued. While officers were tending to both incidents, another substantial motor vehicle accident was reported on North Road (RTE 117) involving two vehicles that ended up off the roadway partially into the wood line. With three major commuting routes affected those trying to get to their desired destinations were substantially impacted for which we apologize. These incidents were amongst a number of other calls for service that stretched available resources. Our thoughts are with the bicyclist and her family. All roadways are currently open. Thank you for your patience.
