Members of the Agawam City Council are complaining about traffic associated with the Big E in West Springfield.
They say that after record-breaking crowds this year, traffic has reached a tipping point and something must be done before next year.
Councilors this week describing back ups into Suffield, Connecticut, and bumper-to-bumper traffic in residential neighborhoods.
One city councilor complained the Big E has no consideration for the people of Agawam.
It may get worse over the next couple of years because of the state sponsored reconstruction of the Morgan-Sullivan Bridge. That is the bridge that links Agawam with West Springfield.
Officials say the 4 million dollar project will be concluded in 2021 and will reduce traffic to one lane in each direction.
