Brattleboro Department of Public Works Road Update

July 20, 2021


The Department of Public Works has crews out in several areas of town working on road repairs following the severe rainstorm on July 17.  The rain caused a great deal of damage throughout town and Town Officials are working with personnel from the State of Vermont and VTrans to manage and seek funding for these repairs.

Motorists and residents are asked to continue to use caution on roadways when approaching crews and equipment working on these repairs and to expect delays.  

Stark Road

Stark Road will be closed while crews repair the road.

Hinesburg Road

The stone culvert failed at the intersection of Hinesburg Road and Melchen Road.  The road will remain closed for several weeks while planning and repairs take place.  

Hinesburg Road

The rain caused the edge of the road to wash out in a few areas of Hinesburg Road.  Crews will be working to repair the edge of the road and secure the guardrails. 

Akley Road

Akley Road washed out in several areas and caused damage to some culverts.  Crews will be working to reconstruct the roadway.

Crosby Street

Crosby Street will remain closed due to a major washout.  State Officials are working with Town Staff to develop a plan to repair the damage.

Summer Paving

In addition to road repairs, the scheduled Summer Paving Project in the Highland ST, Central ST, Pearl ST, Thomas ST, Pellet ST, Blakeslee ST and White Birch AVE neighborhood will continue as planned.  

We appreciate your continued cooperation, understanding and patience as we make these repairs as quickly as possible.
