Town and Village

Gravel roads get monitored, mapped as mud season starts

As we enter the spring season, be aware that gravel roads may become muddy due to the thawing of winter snow and ice. The Brattleboro Department of Public Works will be monitoring these roads and providing status updates through roadside signage, which will be placed at the end of gravel roads throughout town.

Road conditions will also be reported via an online map, which you can view by visiting

The roadside signage and online map will be color-coded. The colors will indicate the following:

• Green: Passable by all vehicles. Expect seasonal conditions.

• Yellow: Four-wheel drive or high-clearance vehicles recommended. Some rutting and muddy conditions.

• Orange: Four-wheel drive or high-clearance vehicles advised. Local traffic only. Expect heavy rutting and deep mud.

• Red: Closed to through traffic. Emergency vehicles and residents with proper vehicles only. Some areas are not passable.

If you have any questions or concerns, contact the Department of Public Works at 802-254-4255 or email Peter Lynch at [email protected].
