Stuck truck closes Route 108 for hours

Posted: Updated:
CAMBRIDGE, Vt. - The road through Smugglers' Notch was closed for hours Wednesday while crews worked to remove a stuck truck.

The tractor-trailer loaded with stone tried to take Route 108 between Stowe and Cambridge. The road is the most direct route from one side of Mount Mansfield to the other and a nice scenic drive for cars, but big rigs don't fit through the narrow, winding turns. Tractor-trailers and large buses are prohibited there and the road is marked with warning signs. Police say the driver was ticketed for failure to obey traffic control devices and equipment violations.

Several trucks have gotten stuck this summer. This truck was damaged in the process, keeping the road closed for even longer than normal.

The road reopened Wednesday evening.
