BENNINGTON – Motor vehicle operators are reminded that the Benmont Avenue Bridge is closed to south-bound traffic (traffic heading toward Main Street). This is due to construction on the bridge. There have been several motorist who have tried to circumvent the one-way traffic since the closure began on Monday, March 9th, which has led to some close-calls.

If you are traveling on Northside Drive, remember to use Rt 7 to access Benmont Avenue.

Construction is planned through October 2016, and police will be conducting routine traffic stops for those who do not follow the displayed traffic signs.
