The Maine Turnpike Authority has reported a problem with its traffic warning software that causes it to issue outdated traffic alerts.

The authority sent out a series of warnings early Tuesday morning that cited traffic issues that occurred days ago.

A turnpike dispatcher said the glitch has been occurring for the past couple of days. The alerts go out to 10,600 email addresses, but turnpike officials do not know how many of those email addresses are still valid.

Erin Courtney, spokeswoman for the Maine Turnpike Authority, said the glitch has caused outdated alerts to go out at random times.

“We’ve been working with our website developer, who has tried to come up with a solution to it,” she said. “Hopefully it will be resolved this week.”
