This week’s Vermont Local Roads Toolbox Safety Talk takes a look at safe driving on wet roads. Toolbox Safety Talk- Week of April 12
Strong storms pushed through the state yesterday in conjunction with Vermont’s first 60+ degree day since last November (it’s been a long winter). A number of roads experienced flooding yesterday and flood warnings continue today as a result of the storm and snow melt.
VTrans reports that the Browns River flooded portions of Route 128 in Essex, and the Lamoille River flooded in Cambridge on Route 15 near the Wrong Way Bridge yesterday. VTrans also reports the Mainstrone State Highway after Route 102 has experienced flooding. The Winooski River caused flooding in Richmond on Bridge Street.
A large tree floated down the river and has become lodged under the Bridge Street Bridge- threatening to snap water and sewage lines the Burlington Free Press reports.
