Hazardous Weather Transportation Routes

Winter is approaching which often brings inclement weather and the possibility of hazardous road conditions for buses. There are certain locations within the district that become difficult to travel to. In the event that we experience such conditions, and deem it safest to run buses on snow routes, the following roads will not be traveled. A snow route stop has been listed below for each road that will not be traveled:

  • Allen Rd. - Rte 3 pick-up and drop off on Middle Fork

  • August Rd. - Rte 1 pick-up and drop off on St. Rte. 508 (Includes: Four Seasons, Highlander rd., Summer Run dr. and Starlight dr.)
