Welcome to the Town of Barkhamsted Connecticut

Winter Safety

Now that the first snowfall of the season is here, please drive carefully and be very aware of other drivers and the slippery conditions.  The highway department does its best to keep the roads safe, but they can't maintain perfect conditions on every hill in town throughout the storm .
Also, please be aware of town regulations which prohibit parking on town roads during a storm so that we can plow the roads as safely and thoroughly as possible. These regulations require that you keep your car in your driveway until the plowing is completed.
