DATE: Thursday, September 14, 2023
TRAFFIC IMPACT: Vermont Route 142 reopened September 7, 2023. In the coming weeks, local traffic should expect either minor delays or alternating one-way traffic controlled by flaggers as work along the roadway essential to the preparing the area for winter and completion of the bridge project is completed.
Placing cap blocks along the South MSE wall has been completed and that area is being cleaned up. Other clean up being done to ready the project for winter includes completing the gravel wetland, cleaning up and around the parking lot at 28 Vernon Street, and working the new slopes on either side of the road. Moment slab work has been paused to allow this work to be done without congesting the corridor further now that traffic is moving through.
Other crews will work outside of the roadway on building concrete bases for cabinet and meters for signals at the intersection where the new bridge will tie in, and on ITS conduit work between vaults.
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.
