Northbound I-91 traffic has been relocated onto the southbound bridge. Traffic will remain reduced to one lane in each direction on I-91 until completion of the new bridge. The new bridge will be 104’ wide and is designed to carry all four lanes of traffic –two northbound and two southbound.
To reduce congestion on I-91, both Exit 3 on ramps will be closed on Sunday, January 22nd from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM (I-91 will remain open). Traffic conditions on both I-91 and through the town will be monitored closely throughout the day. Should traffic congestion become an issue, the ramps may be re-opened until traffic conditions improve. This will be managed actively throughout the day until peak traffic volumes have passed.
For your planning purposes, ramp closures are also scheduled for January 29th and February 5th, 12th, 20th, and 26th.

Selectboard Meeting Notes: FY18 Budget Approved, IT Plan To Understand Earthlink Accounts Before Ending ThemBy cgrotke | Tue, January 17 2017
Brattleboro’s FY18 budget was approved by the Brattleboro Selectboard for presentation to Representative Town Meeting in March, ending a nine week process of review and adjustment. Your municipal taxes will increase 3.5 cents if approved by representatives.
A new IT plan will streamline Town networks and allow staff to use 2017 technology. Commonwealth Dairy and Hermit Thrush Brewery were assisted with land and loans, a new Mexican restaurant will open soon, Town audits show a clean bill of financial health, and mobile homes will be protected from future flooding.
Hello to all iBrattleboro readers!
As some of you may have heard, last week I announced my candidacy for the Brattleboro Selectboard. I will be on the ticket for one of the two available one-year seats.
I feel that this is a good time to inject a little energy and positive ideas into our town, and I hope to be part of that effort. I think I’ll be able to bring a straightforward voice to the board, balancing the desire to try some new directions and also be firmly planted in fiscal responsibility - important to all hard-working taxpayers (like myself!).
Brattleboro’s Stump Streets, formerly Forest Square, are succeeding in ridding the neighborhood of pesky trees. Our landlord has joined the in-crowd and has taken down a 150 year old maple tree with the encouragement of a tree cutting service.
They’ve nagged her for years and she finally gave in. The tree is in pretty good shape. They are out there right now being very careful to preserve all of the nice wood they are getting paid to harvest.
The tree was planted in the middle of the 1800’s by a group of Brattleboro residents that had formed a Shade Tree Association. They wanted to make sure future generation would have lovely shaded trees for cool, summer walking.
Hello! I wanted to take a moment to announce my run for Selectboard. I am excited to embark on this run and welcome any questions you might have. Feel free to email me: email@example.com. I have started a Facebook page facebook/brandiestarrforselectboard and will post questions and answers there as well.
After many a meeting to discuss the details, the FY18 Municipal Budget will likely be approved for presentation to Representative Town Meeting at Tuesday’s meeting of the Brattleboro Selectboard.
An $80,000 IT plan will be presented. The board also will hear about financial audits, work out an easement arrangement with Commonwealth Dairy, loan some money to Hermit Thrush Brewery, and more.
The Brattleboro Traffic Safety Committee will meet on Thursday, January 19, 2017 at 4:00pm in the Selectboard Meeting Room at the Municipal Center.
