ADDISON COUNTY — Several roads across the county were closed on Friday morning due to flooding brought on by the heavy rainfall the area received at the end of last week.

A stretch of Route 116 in Bristol was shut down Friday morning, as were sections of River Road in New Haven and Route 7 near McConnell Road in Brandon. As waters continued to rise, a section of Three Mile Bridge Road from Route 7 to Halladay Road in Middlebury was closed, and a portion of Route 125 in Ripton was reduced to one lane.

By Andy Kirkaldy

Chief George Merkel said the department now owns two $1,000 Tasers, which he believes are a safer tool for subduing suspects than other options at police officers’ disposal — physical restraint, pepper spray or batons.
