Can streets be restricted to residents only?
As discussed previously, the shear volume of traffic in Billerica is largely due to factors outside the town’s control. Billerica’s proximity to New Hampshire and the economic development in the region as a whole subjects the town to many out-of-town commuters passing through.

Contrary to some requests, it is neither feasible nor legal to restrict our roadways from out-of-town traffic through use of “Resident Only” or “Local Traffic Only” signs. Such signage is only intended to be used for temporary situations generally associated with construction projects.
