I-91 Brattleboro Bridge Replacement Project Update: Week of April 17th


I-91

Southbound I-91 traffic is anticipated to shift to the new bridge by the end of next week! Southbound traffic will continue to be limited to one lane during demolition of the old bridge structure and construction of the remaining southbound roadway.

A single lane closure and intermittent shoulder closures for northbound traffic throughout the project limits will be installed as needed for construction activities throughout the week. Please follow advanced warning signs.

Route 30

The speed limit on Route 30 near the work zone has been reduced to 40 mph. Project-related truck activity on Route 30 will continue. Route 30 may be reduced to a single lane intermittently, with flaggers regulating traffic within the work zone.

Upper Dummerston Road

Upper Dummerston may be reduced to a single lane intermittently, with flaggers regulating traffic within the work zone.

Beginning the week of April 24th, Upper Dummerston Road at I-91 will be completely closed in order to perform demolition of the old bridge. This closure will last no more than seven days. Traffic will be detoured accordingly during this closure.

West River Trail

The West River Trail is open. There are intersections between construction access and the trail path, and users should exercise extreme caution at these intersections. As an additional safety precaution, users of the West River Trail are reminded to keep pets on a leash in this area.

West River

No impacts are anticipated.

southbound

Southbound opens next week! Nice.

They had what seemed to be very possible truck and person out there the last couple of days working on the new southbound lanes, connecting them to the bridge.
