Motorists Urged to Stay off Roads as Cleanup Continues

Law enforcement and transportation officials continue to urge motorists to stay off Vermont roads if possible. Snow is still falling in Vermont and travel continues to be hazardous throughout the state and cars and tractor trailer trucks are still sliding off roads throughout the state. These vehicles are making snow clearing more difficult.

Vermont State Police also ask those on the roads, particularly tractor trailer drivers to drive with due caution. VSP also asks those driving tractor trailers to delay trips north of White River Junction on Interstate 89 if at all possible to give plow crews more room to work on roads.

A number of local and state roads remain closed due to flooding or snow. Motorists should always respect detours and stay off closed roads.
