Release: Unsnarling from the snowstorm

Maintenance forces of the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) are beginning to wind down operations as the effects of the Nor’easter diminish from south to north. As anticipated, most of the snow fell in southern and central Vermont. Crews came on as the snow worked its way north and all 250 front line vehicles were deployed at various times throughout the day. No major incidents were reported beyond brief delays related to a stranded tractor trailer on VT 9 in Searsburg.

VTrans crews will continue to work through the evening commute with night patrols maintaining roads overnight before a full deployment for the morning commute. Motorists should expect to see the tow plow working on I-89 between Richmond and Berlin until about 9PM tonight.
