Work continues to repair storm-damaged roads

Valley Reporter - 4:12 pm Fri Jun 3rd, 2011

Road crews across all Valley towns continue to work to restore damaged and washed out roads following severe thunderstorms and flooding over the past two weeks.

Waitsfield was the hardest hit by a powerful, localized thunderstorm on May 20 that produced one-inch hail, heavy rains and flooding. The town lost 35 culverts and 14 roads and saw significant road damage and washouts in some cases. The total damage estimate is $400,000. Until FEMA funds are allocated, the select board voted to access a $500,000 line of credit to complete necessary repairs.
