STATE PROJECT:  Rte 7 North-South / Rte 9 East-West:

The Bennington Paving Project continues along Route 9 in the vicinity of the 4 Chimneys Inn and continues east for approximately 2 miles through downtown Bennington and ends at the state highway limits, near (Bakkerij Krijnen).  The Route 7 portion of the project begins near the Park Lawn Cemetery and continues north for approximately 1.5 miles to Veteran’s Memorial Drive (near the Chamber of Commerce).

Work to be performed includes cold planning of the existing pavement, surface preparation, paving with a leveling course and a wearing course, drainage, line striping and stop bar detection.  The primary focus for milling through August 24th will be Route 7 SOUTH.  Crews will continue adjusting manholes and storm drain structures throughout the rest of this week and next week along Route 9. Depending on the location of these structures, at times it becomes necessary to temporarily restrict parking in these areas.  Crews work as diligently as possible to reopen these parking areas as quickly as possible.  Please be advised that cars remaining in temporary no parking areas when work commences each morning will be towed at the owner’s expense. This is necessary in order to allow construction activities to progress.   As soon as parking can be safely re-opened, the contractor will do so.  Crews are scheduled to begin paving the milled portion of Route 7 on Friday, 8/24. Paving is weather dependent, and inclement weather and wet conditions result in changes to the proposed schedule.

Motorists are urged to use caution when driving on milled surfaces and pay close attention to raised structures in the roadway.  Please take caution as men and equipment will be in the roadway.  Expect Delays.

 

Reminder:
