Afternoon and evening activities are canceled at Avon Public Schools and Talcott Mountain Academy is closed Thursday. The Recreation and Parks Department has also canceled all activities on Jan. 2. Town Hall and the Avon Free Public Library will close at 3 p.m. Thursday.

Road Conditions

Avon Public Works plow drivers were out since early morning Thursday treating the roads.

"The roads are slippery, more than normal  because of the cold conditions," Avon Highway Foreman Paul Welsh said. "The colder temperature make the salt treatment  less effective. Crews have been on the road since 4 a.m. and will work until the storm is over. Each [driver] has applied three salt applications to their routes along with plowing."
