    traffic is reviewed

    Traffic issues on Woodstock Avenue were attributed to a broken signal light and the continuation of daytime work on the road Monday.

    The Board of Highway Commissioners held a brief meeting — it adjourned after about six minutes — to get an update on the status of a trial with new lane configurations that began last week.

    Mayor Christopher Louras said there were problems when Rutland High School let out Monday because a signal light on Stratton Road was broken “again.” He also said painting was continuing on the road, and that it needed to come to an end.

    “Unless we get a valid test with no obstruction, it’s going to be hard to say yea or nay,” he said. “They just need to stop. They need to get out of the road. They need to get out of the right of way during the day so we can assess what’s going on with the road.”

    Public Works Superintendent Jeffrey Wennberg said he had been assured that the daytime work on the road had concluded Monday and he expected to have data on side street traffic in another week.

    The commission will discuss the lanes again at its next regular meeting Monday, following the 3 p.m. Board of Finance meeting.
