Construction Update Brattleboro-Hinsdale Bridge – February 8, 2024

DATE: Thursday, February 8, 2024


Additional steel deliveries to the Pier 1 site in Vermont will be scheduled at a later date. Details will follow once available.

The delivery route will be along New Hampshire and Vermont Route 119 to Depot Street. This impact will include a short duration closure (approximately 10 minutes) of the twin bridges beginning at the intersection of Bridge Street to Canal Street, Main Street, and Vermont Route 142. Uniformed Traffic Officers will be located at the intersection’s entrance to Bridge Street during the closure period. While a time has not been set, all deliveries to Vermont will be off peak hours.


The Pier 1 cofferdam has maintained a de-watered state with manageable flows. The pipe piles have been cut to grade with steel reinforcement and concrete placed. The top of the concrete tremie is currently being cleaned to prepare for footing forms and rebar. Forms should begin to be placed today and tomorrow with rebar placed and tied beginning next week. Welding of studs is expected to be complete by this week’s end. The first concrete placement for the footing is scheduled for Tuesday, February 20th.


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.

Unanticipated delays at a couple of the piers have adjusted the project completion date from Fall 2024 to Summer 2025.
