Okay, soooo.... question. I'm driving up to Montreal on Friday. I had been planning on doing a large portion of that up US 5, but now it looks like I need to amend my plan. I know it's fucked through Vermont, but how about in Massachusetts? Is it passable between the Mass Pike and Greenfield? How about up to Brattleboro?
For that matter, I-91 is still all intact, right?

Aaand about my planned route(s) home: is NY 22 impassable anywhere north of I-90? How about US 9 north of Albany?

I-91 is fully reopened.  VTrans has partnered with Google for a "Vermont Flooding 2011" map, which suggests that US 5 has also been reopened.

US 9 should be fine for most of the way north of Albany; Irene didn't really manage to get past the Adirondacks.

Thanks for the advice, guys.

Report from the field:
US 5 is 100% intact, at least up to I-91 exit 9.
The NY 22/US 9 bridge in Keeseville is closed but I don't think that's storm related.
NY 9N/22 was closed through Port Henry but apparently that was for some Labor Day event.


We got our power back Friday morning after I left.
