Traffic Stopped as Crews Battle Brush Fires on 290 East

The Mass State Police are recommending drivers take an alternate route home this evening.

Traffic Stopped as Crews Battle Brush Fires on 290 East

There is a significant traffic back-up due to several brush fires along Route 290 east in the Northborough and Marlborough area, said the Massachusetts State Police.

At 5:10 p.m., troopers closed several ramps along 290 east, however, those ramps were reopened at 5:40 p.m.

A curiosity factor has also caused significant delays on the westbound side as well.

State police suggest motorists seek alternate routes until emergency crews clear the scene.
