Slow Down! Turtles Crossing on Rt. 126 in Lincoln

From mid-may to early July, turtles are on the roads and we currently have a population that is moving across Rt. 126 near Old Concord Road and Joey’s Auto Garage. Kindly slow down, and if you can safely do so, please avoid hitting the turtles.┬áThe large wetland on one side and the ponds on the other are both critical habitat for turtles and other wildlife. More information about the turtles of Massachusetts and how to protect them can be found here.
