Notch Road closed for the near future

STOWE, Vt. (WCAX) It could be the end of the season for the Notch Road today.

Transportation officials say with freezing temperatures and snow in the forecast they plan to close Route 108 through the notch at 4 p.m. rather than risk dicey conditions for drivers.

For now they are calling it an "interim closure" -- depending on how the weather shapes up in the coming week.
