Hinsdale Bridge Update March 2023

Construction Update

Brattleboro-Hinsdale

BF A004(152)

DATE: MARCH 2023

TRAFFIC IMPACT:¬†Motorists on Vermont Route 142 should be aware that construction activities are ongoing along VT 142 approximately 1000′ south of the intersection with New Hampshire Route 119. Construction vehicles will continue entering and exiting the construction site and minor flagging and delays may be encountered in this area.

Traffic Control Plans for June 2023 include a scheduled closure of VT 142 for 90 days. The location of the closure will be north of the intersection of Royal Road and continue to 28 Vernon Street with access to both being maintained for the duration.

CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITIES:

The Vermont bridge abutment continues to progress with backfill and embankment operations scheduled through the end of this month. Construction on the mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) wall on the north side of the abutment will then begin.

Pile driving operations are complete at Pier 3, but will continue at Pier locations 2 and 1 – these are the piers closest to Vermont. Intermittent pounding of diesel pile hammers is anticipated through the Summer of 2023 with Saturday work anticipated. The contractor is allowed to work Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. unrestricted.

Pier work is ongoing over the CT River.

December work on the detour turn-around for the closure of VT 142.

LOCATION:

The Hinsdale, NH to Brattleboro, VT bridge project will replace the existing twin truss bridges on New Hampshire Route 119 over the Connecticut River with a single, new structure approximately 1800′ long. On the Vermont side, the new structure will begin on Vermont Route 142 – about 1000′ south of the current intersection of VT 142 and NH 119. The new configuration will connect to NH 119 in New Hampshire east of the George’s Field Road/NH 119 intersection.

PROJECTED COMPLETION: Fall 2024.
