Press Release - Highway / Traffic Notification


The Heavy Duty Wrecker service  (TDI) has cleared out the TT Unit from the crash earlier on VT RT 78 near Mclaughlin Dr. in Highgate.  There is a little road clean-up of snow and ice being done now and the roadway should be fully open within 10 minutes.


Winter time driving so expect slippery spots and drive with care – slow speeds and good distance between vehicles!
