What is the best way to check the current status of the Route 9 chain-up law?

Storms can be very fluid, and the chain-up requirement may get turned on and off several times during a storm.

When VTrans activates (or de-activates) the chain-up law, they will post to VTrans’ Facebook page, VT511 Twitter page, the 511 Traveler Information website, and push out a VT Alert. 

With VT Alerts you can subscribe to get an email or text alert, so you don’t have to seek out the information.

Drivewyze PreClear

Drivewyze PreClear Weigh Station Bypass Program: Vermont DMV has authorized the Drivewyze PreClear bypass program to operate at some locations. Commercial fleets and owner-operators that register with the Drivewyze PreClear bypass service are eligible to bypass these sites instead of always pulling in, at rates determined by the state of Vermont and based upon safety scores and other prerequisites. Drivewyze PreClear is not a transponder-based bypass system, but runs instead as a GPS based application on smartphones, tablets and select in-cab devices.
