PORTLAND — The Maine Turnpike Authority says a problem with its traffic warning software is causing it to issue outdated traffic alerts.

The authority issued a series of warnings early on Tuesday that cited traffic concerns that were from days ago. A turnpike dispatcher says the glitch has been occurring for the past couple of days.

The Portland Press Herald reports the alerts go out to more than 10,000 email addresses. An authority spokeswoman says the glitch has caused outdated alerts to go out at random times. She says the authority hopes to resolve the issue this week.
