Snow Emergency

  • Highway Crews Busy Treating Roads, Police Advise Drivers 'Plan Accordingly'

    Newtown Public Works crews have been on the job since 2 am preparing for what forecasters are predicting will be a three to five-inch snow event, and prompting a winter weather advisory until 5 pm.

    Schools are closed today, easing the burden for road crews and local police, according to Police Sgt David Kullgren. He reminds drivers, however, that conditions are expected to worsen well into the afternoon.

    "So residents should plan accordingly," he advised. "Stay home unless there is an emergency, and stay off the roads so town crews can do their job clearing."
