Potential for Significant Travel Impacts from Thursday night, 12/22, through the Holiday Weekend 

According to the National Weather Service, a combination of strong winds and snow is expected from Thursday afternoon into Friday night. Outdoor conditions and driving will be hazardous, and some roads could be impassable.

While the Town understands the importance of this upcoming weekend to residents and their families, we recommend everyone to stay off the roads from Thursday afternoon until Saturday morning, 6:00 a.m. If you must use the roads, then use with extreme caution and travel at safe speeds. Please do not park on Town roads to avoid interference with snow removal operations.  

Arctic air and bitterly cold wind chills are expected from Friday through the holiday weekend. Due to the wind chill and blowing snow, most road conditions will remain hazardous through Saturday night.  

Town plow drivers will do their best with the resources they have but expect longer times for roadways to be cleared. The Town will work to clear the major roads, and then minor roads when time permits.  

Town offices will be closed from Thursday afternoon, December 22nd – Monday, December 26th. If you have an emergency, then call 9-1-1.
