Construction Update Brattleboro-Hinsdale Bridge – May 9, 2024

Construction Update


BF A004(152)

DATE: Thursday, May 9, 2024


No traffic impacts are anticipated on Vermont Route 142 next week, however the work zone remains active and motorists should watch for construction vehicles entering and exiting the work site.

Due to current work on New Hampshire Route 119 associated with the project, vehicles traveling eastbound into New Hampshire from Vermont should expect a newly line-striped lane shift on NH 119 shortly after traveling over the twin bridges. Signs and barrels are in place to assist motorists through the work zone.


Crews will continue to work on finishing the tensioning of the recently erected structural steel next week. The water treatment system used at Pier 1 is scheduled to be cleaned and the components removed from the site beginning on Monday.


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.

  • lookin' good

    I recently took a look at both ends of this new bridge to see how the intersections would work. The Hinsdale side is a nice, smooth curve taking you on or off the bridge. The Brattleboro side is a bit less graceful but still looked like it would be fairly easy access in and out of town.

    The bridge itself is looking really nice. A bit more sleek and modern than expected now that I can see it in place. It still needs a lot of work – decking, paving, painting, railings lights, signs – but it’s done enough to see how it is shaping up.
