GSTAAD, Switzerland -- Workers were plowing the way to Roman Polanski's chalet in the Alpine resort of Gstaad ahead of his transfer from a Swiss jail.
The Swiss Justice Ministry wouldn't say if Polanski would be released Monday on $4.5 million bail.
But workers were seen clearing heavy snow from the road leading up to the property where the 76-year-old director will be held under house arrest.
Polanski must remain at the chalet as Switzerland decides whether to extradite him to the U.S. for having sex in 1977 with a 13-year-old girl.
Polanski was still believed held by authorities in Winterthur, near Zurich. His lawyer Lorenz Erni was seen entering the jail early Monday.
