The City Council voted Tuesday to remove the concrete barriers installed last week at Alaminos Road and Benz Road, reinstate the turn restrictions at peak hours and install 20 temporary speed humps to reduce speed in the residential neighborhood.

The decision came during a heated special council meeting requested by Mayor Bob Kellar after hundreds of residents of the Saugus neighborhood contacted the city last week to complain about the cement barriers installed Sept. 24.

The barriers force Benz Road traffic onto Alaminos Road, which stops drivers from using Benz Road as a through street. The decision pleased many Benz Road residents who saw a decrease in the amount of traffic on their residential street.
