Construction Update Brattleboro-Hinsdale Bridge

Construction Update


BF A004(152)

DATE: Thursday, September 28, 2023

TRAFFIC IMPACT: Vermont Route 142 has reopened, but traffic during the workday can expect minor delays. Alternating one-way traffic controlled by flaggers with a police detail can be expected during fine grading of ditch lines and seeding and mulching along the roadway next week.


Crews are finishing the placement of materials and fine grading the wetland detention pond this week. Flaggers are being utilized to stop traffic briefly to allow trucks and equipment to enter and exit wetland and other work areas safely. Installation of granite curbing is planned to begin Wednesday. Once that is done, the ditch lines will be fine graded. Alternating one-way traffic controlled by flaggers, along with a police detail, may be utilized for this work.

The moment slab has been cleaned off, and crews will waterproof and seal the expansion joints next.

A crew is on site to finish welding the railroad track which was cut to allow the installation of pipe in a trench underneath it. That task should be done this week.


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.
