Update re: VT ROUTE 9 Road Closure

On November 26, 2014, at approximately 1053 hours, the Vermont State Police began to respond to numerous vehicles off the road on VT Route 9, in the town of Marlboro. During the course of the day, the State Police assisted approximately 30+ vehicles (including 15 tractor trailers) that became stuck or slid off this area of VT Route 9. At approximately 1830 hours, Vermont Route 9 in Marlboro had to be closed to vehicular traffic, due to the significant amount of vehicles/tractor trailers blocking portions of the roadway, and poor road conditions. VT Route 9 was closed for approximately 4 hours. Vermont AOT and several heavy duty and light duty tow trucks assisted in clearing the roadway. There were no significant crashes and no injuries sustained in any of the incidents in this area of VT Route 9.
