The Vermont Municipal Highway Association held its annual field day event at the Barre Auditorium in Barre City on May 12. The nearly 500 attendees from municipalities and state agencies were able to take part in safety training time out exercises at vendor booths. Vermont Local Roads used compliance questions regarding the new 2010 MUTCD for its training time out.
The traditional snowplow and backhoe competitions were well represented, with nearly 30 teams competing in each. Guest starter “The Logger” Rusty DeWees provided competitors in the snowplow competition with a couple laughs as they navigated the rigorous obstacle course in the parking lot.
DeWees showcased his comedic talent during a barbeque lunch, and the day concluded with an awards ceremony for the event winners and a door prize raffle. Check out the June issue of the Vermont Local Roads newsletter for more images from the day and a complete list of top competition finishers.
