That's the best way that I know of, and the way that Rutland County
natives have shown me. Bypassing Rutland is always a good plan.

Nope. That bridge over Otter Creek and the adjacent section of Route
73 that parallels the river are subject to seasonal flooding. Every
spring the river floods the road, which is closed until the waters
recede. It's a routine part of early spring, and occasionally other
times of the year when non-seasonal floods occur. Locals count on it
and use alternate routes over Otter Creek, usually the
Leicester-Whiting Road or all the way north into Middlebury. It's
*usually* OK during most of ski season.
