Time for the regular “add your own” observation column. What’s going on around Brattleboro this spring?
- Renaissance Jewelry is having a big sale and seemingly going out of business after quite a while on Main Street.
- Rt 30 work is starting up again – some new guardrails installed near the edge of town. The bigger observation is that flaggers are going to become a job of the past, replaced by robotics. There are new flagging machines with a combination of cameras, radios, lights, and barricades that can do the job without any pesky humans in the way. (Flaggers join toll booth collectors as obsolete jobs.)
