Billerica is located 20 miles northwest of Boston and borders Lowell to the south. The remnants of the historic Middlesex Canal are now part of a renovation project aimed at restoring portions of this landmark waterway that once traversed the town from north to south. Visitors to the Middlesex Canal Museum can discover more about the canal, which was the superhighway of its day. The town is also well-known for its Yankee Doodle Homecoming Weekend in September, which celebrates Billerica patriot Thomas Ditson, who is believed to be the subject of the classic American song, "Yankee Doodle Dandy." The Concord River is a major regional water feature, while the Shawsheen River meanders through the southern part of town.
Highways: State routes 3 and 128 and interstate route 495 provide access to interstate route 93 allowing motorists easy access to Boston and New Hampshire.
Commuter Rail: Service is available from North Billerica to North Station, Boston.
Bus: Bus Billerica is a member of the Lowell Regional Transit Authority (LRTA) which provides fixed bus service between Lowell and Billerica. Paratransit services, including medical trips to Boston and special work trips, are available for the elderly and disabled through LRTA's Road Runner program.
