Some roads in Enfield have portions that are seasonal and are not treated or plowed from December 1 through April 1. Residents that continue to use these sections of road do so at their own risk. These roads include part of West Enfield Center Road and Butternut Creek Road from Thomas Rd to VanOstrand Rd. These seasonal roads are posted with signs that read “Seasonal roads, no maintenance Dec 1st through April 1st”.
During inclement Winter weather, there are four routes that are run with Town trucks. Each route has approximately ten center line miles, which are 20 miles both ways. Depending upon the amount of snow it takes approximately four hours to run each route.
Cinders are not available anymore, We only use sand on the roads for the most part. We do have a salt/sand mixture which we rarely use on paved roads under certain weather conditions.
