I-91 Brattleboro Bridge Replacement Project Update – Week of November 24, 2013


Northbound I-91 traffic has been relocated onto the southbound bridge. Traffic will remain reduced to one lane in each direction on I-91 until completion of the new bridge in the Fall of 2015.

There will be no night work the week of November 24th. Night work will resume the week of December 2nd, and will continue Sunday through Thursday nights for the next several months, until demolition is complete.

Route 30

The speed limit on Route 30 near the work zone has been reduced to 40 mph. This reduction will remain in effect through the Fall of 2015.

Truck activity on Route 30 will continue for the week of November 24th. Route 30 will be reduced to a single lane intermittently; when this occurs, flaggers will regulate traffic flow.

Upper Dummerston Road

No project impacts to Upper Dummerston Road are anticipated for the week of November 24th.

West River Trail

Work beneath the bridge will continue for the week of November 24th. Monday through Wednesday, the trail will be closed at the Marina Trailhead and through access will not be permitted from the north, due to construction activities. The trail will be open Thanksgiving Thursday through Sunday.

Signage at the Marina Trailhead and Rice Farm Road Trailhead will indicate current trail status. In addition, we will keep the project’s website www.i91brattleborobridge.com up to date on the current status of the trail. The Trail is open from the northern trailhead to a point just north of the bridge construction area. The northern trailhead access location is on Rice Farm Road, about a mile south of the Iron Bridge.

West River

Overhead demolition activities will continue over the next several months on the existing northbound bridge. Buoys and rope will be placed in the West River to keep boaters away from overhead activities.
