Storm Update: Pomfret Road Crew Takes a Break

Submitted 2 years ago

POMFRET- The town road crew will be taking a break from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. to give the road crew time to sleep before going out again.

"It's almost useless to try to keep up with it," said road foreman Art Lewin, explaining that there is so much wind the plow truck drivers can't see. "We literally have to stop in the road and wait for it to stop."

The three-person road crew has been plowing since 9:30 a.m. 

"It gives us a chance to go home and get and get a meal," said Lewin. 

The snow is starting to dwindle and Lewin said the roads will be clear for the morning commute tomorrow.
