No School Monday, Feb. 11, as North Branford Digs Out

With lots of snow still covering the roads, North Branford schools are closed tomorrow. What roads have been plowed? Here's a list.

 

As North Branford digs out from the Blizzard of 2013, Public Works employees and contractors are hard at work restoring the town, but North Branford schools will be closed tomorrow. This snow day pushes North Branford past its allotted snow days and will take away Monday from April vacation.

In the meantime, there's a travel ban in North Branford until 6 p.m. as roads are cleared. On Facebook we asked if your road has been plowed. Here's the list so far according to North Branford Patch readers.

Glenmeadow Drive has been plowed with one lane only, still needs a lot of work to be done. I thought the plows would be out all night Friday into Saturday morning to keep up with storm, but I was wrong. Tried calling the Emergency Call Center on Sunday morning (all four numbers) no phones were answered, finally I called the Police Department to get info, which was very helpful. So much for the Center.

Mr. Franco - The Public Works crew will be back to start opening up the roads wider. The plows were out on Friday night into Saturday AM, until they started getting stuck in the snow during the peak of the storm. We then took them off of the road so they were not damaged, as we knew we could not keep up with the snowfall amounts. They resumed on Sunday AM. This also allowed the staff to get a few hours sleep. The Emergency Call Center was manned late morning, so I do apologize if your call went unanswered. Bonnie Therrien, Interim Town Manager

I still don't understand why we have had ZERO emergency notification calls from the town of North Branford, throughout the entire event, and no explanation as to why.

Mr. Viscuso - The crews are working on pushing back the snow today. This will continue throughout the week. Bonnie Therrien, Interim Town Manager

S: This is from the latest update (http://northbranford.patch.com/articles/monday-feb-11-blizzard-update-for-north-branford): "We know that people were upset about the lack of phone calls over the weekend using the Reverse 911 system. We were not aware until yesterday, that the system was not working correctly. The system we use is owned by the State so I did report this to the State and we are working on correcting this."
