Current Photos from Route 4 Mendon

ED NOTE: Our veteran reporter/photographer, Thomas Bartlett, managed to get to the east side of the Route 4 washout and send us the following photos from a differnt perspective from those taken from the "paved" side. Hopefully they remind you of the scope of the problem, as well as a indication of why access there, and on Meadowlake Drive into Chittenden is closed or restricted. There are some VERY big construction vehicles needed to solve the problem, and they need ALL the roadway ALL the time. Please be patient and understanding.


You MUST avoid this area at all costs. Travel through the area is ABSOLUTELY limited only to emergency vehicles. Alternate route may be found by accessing the Vermont AOT website at and following the link to "Google Map of Irene Related Transportation Issues In Vermont"

Stay safe.
