Middlesex Town Road Updates:

VT Route 12 is still closed between Shady Rill and Culver Hill Roads. It’s quite the damage, so it may not open fully for a week!

DETOUR DIRECTIONS:

-Coming from Montpelier, take a left after the ROAD CLOSED sign on VT 12 to Culver Hill. Follow Culver Hill as it bears left onto French Road and dead ends at Shady Rill.

– Take a right onto Shady Rill. This is a paved road.

– Follow the paved road to the right around the Town gazebo and Rumney School about 2 miles until it ends at VT 12.

– From there you can take a left on VT 12 toward points north.

(If you’re coming from the north and headed toward Montpelier, do the reverse.)
