Most gravel roads in good shape; Gibson still closed
BRATTLEBORO — The Brattleboro Public Works Department reports that Gibson Road remains closed to through traffic until further notice because of muddy conditions from the seasonal thaw. Meadowbrook Road is listed in "fair" condition and closed to all traffic except residents. Sunset Lake Road is "good" with a few moguls. All other gravel roads are listed as "good."
A road in good condition means passenger vehicles will be able to travel cautiously, but will pose minimal impact. Expect some rutting and muddy conditions. Emergency service vehicles should be able to travel with little impact on response times. Fair condition means that passenger vehicles with low clearance could suffer damages. High clearance vehicles or four wheel drive is recommended.
Expect heavy rutting, washboards, and substantial mud. Travel should be for local residents only. Emergency services response will be slow and difficult on roads with fair condition.
Poor condition means that only a high clearance, four wheel drive vehicle will be able to travel the length of this road. Expect heavy rutting, slimy and slippery conditions, and deep mud. Traffic should be for local residents only. Emergency services may have many difficulties on these roads.
