Tire Chains

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.
