12 Central Maine Roads You Want To Avoid During A Snowstorm
Even though we were blessed with a few days of abnormally warm weather earlier this week, I think we can all agree that winter is not done with us, yet. In fact, it looks like we could see as much as 8" of snow during Friday's storm.
One of the worst parts about Maine, and the rest of New England, during the winter is having to travel during our winter storms. Sure, the pandemic has taught us all how to work remotely when we need to... But, sometimes, you still need to get to the office, the store, or wherever.
If you have lived in Central Maine very long, you know that there are certain roads that are worse than others during a winter storm.
We've put together a list of roads and streets that get really rough in the middle of a snowstorm.
Central Maine Roads & Streets To Avoid In A Snowstorm
The above list was based on comments from our listeners, co-workers, friends, and family. Clearly, our list covers a wide spread of towns across Central Maine. From Augusta, to Waterville, to Norridgewock, to Greene, and even Lewiston. Your opinion of which roads are rough may differ greatly. Feel free to send us your suggestions for streets and roads that are really rough when it snows.
In the past, I have made some big mistakes about driving conditions. Anxious to get back home (so I could get back to work), I once left my hometown of Houlton in the middle of a snowstorm. My family and I nearly died several times. In reality, I should have just played it safe and spent another night up north.
So, please don't take chances. Play it safe.
