Huge backup on the Mass Pike near Exit 8 in Palmer

PALMER, Mass. (WWLP) – 22News has received multiple calls from drivers on the Massachusetts Turnpike, early Tuesday evening, about the traffic delays in Palmer.

Viewers are reporting huge amount of traffic near Exit 8 on the Mass Pike. One caller told 22News, “It feels extremely unsafe,” and she had been waiting in traffic for over an hour.

Another caller said traffic was backed up for over two miles. Some drivers are blaming the toll demolition along the Mass Pike and the new all electronic tolling system, which went live last Friday night.
