The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) in conjunction with Cold River Bridges will be installing a temporary bridge on VT Route 11 at Bridge #57 just east of Breezy Hill Road and/or 1.3 miles west of the VT 106 & River Street intersection.  This bridge will be installed with a northern shift in the roadway thus taking traffic off the sinking eastbound travel lane.  The installation of the temporary bridge should be completed by September 1, 2017.

We are in hopes that the bridge will be opened to thru traffic today, September 15, 2017.

 The following is the anticipated work schedule for the week beginning Monday, September 18, 2017.

Monday thru Friday:

  • Line striping which will cause traffic control allowing for one lane of alternating traffic within the bridge zone.
  • General clean up as the project comes to a completion.

All pedestrians and bicyclists continue to have access thru the work zone.


The following is the anticipated work schedule for the week beginning Monday, September 11, 2017.

Monday:

  • Preparation for paving the approaches to the temporary bridge.

 Tuesday:

  • Weather permitting, paving the approaches to the temporary bridge.

Wednesday & Thursday:

  • Guardrail work.

Friday:

  • Clean up and opening up the bridge to motorists.

Please Note:  If weather does not cooperate for paving on Tuesday it will affect the opening date. 

 

All pedestrians and bicyclists continue to have access thru the work zone.

We ask motorists to use extreme caution while traveling through the work zone.  The safety of the workers, pedestrians and the motorists is of the utmost importance.

Anyone with questions or concerns regarding this project may contact Stephanie Barrett, Public Outreach Coordinator at 802-862-6085.
