Heavy rains cause road wash-outs in WindsorJuly 03,2013
WINDSOR — Town Manager Tom Marsh reported last night that heavy rains caused road wash-outs and sporadic flooding on Central Street, County Road and Route 44. Hunt Road and Estey Lane were closed last night due to major flooding and are now open for traffic. Marsh stressed that drivers be cautious on the roads today.
"Hunt Road is barely passable between Marton Road and State Street. You should not travel it as there are severe washouts," Marsh said on the town of Windsor's Facebook page. "Estey Lane is a better choice, but it too is in very rough shape. County Road has a couple of spots that are badly washed out as well by the Interstate 91 overpass and by Johnson Road."MORE IN This Just InWESTON Remember your most embarrassing moments around your high school graduation?
