5:45 PM: Weston Road is now open to through traffic, but Broad Street remains closed as CL&P crews work to remove a large pine tree that fell across the road taking down two utility poles, wires, and a hanging traffic light.
Weston Police Sergeant Patrick Daubert said traffic lights will not be working for the next few days at the intersection of Weston Road and Broad Street and temporary stop signs will be installed for traffic control.
While the state and town have made significant headway clearing the roads in town, Sgt. Daubert urged residents to stay home tonight so plowing and clearing can continue.
He also advised homeowners to make sure their direct vent furnace flues are not obscured because carbon monoxide could back up into the house from a blocked flue. “People should also make sure their carbon monoxide detectors are working,” Sgt. Daubert said.
