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

The Bennington Paving Project: 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).

Crews will continue adjusting manholes and storm drain structures throughout the this week along Route 7. One-lane alternating traffic will be required.  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.

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.

Work on sidewalk ramps along Route 9 will continue this week.  Once structures and sidewalk ramps are complete on Route 9, crews will move to Route 7 to accomplish the same.  PLEASE STAY OFF FRESH CONCRETE AND FOLLOW CLOSURE DETOURS!!

New (Additional)  State Paving Project: North Bennington Rte 67 / Rte 67A

The STATE paving project along 67 and 67A begins on Route 67A at the State Highway limit (near the Capstone Church) and proceeds northerly for approximately 3.3 miles to the intersection with Route 67.  The project along Route 67 extends from the State Highway limits near the Homestead Mews progressing easterly to the town line of North Bennington and Shaftsbury.

The rail crossing located on Route 67 in North Bennington near the post office was scheduled to be replaced Sept 7-11.  Work on the crossing will continue as needed after the closure period has ended.  A one-way alternating traffic pattern in this location will be in effect as long as is necessary.  A signed detour will be in effect. The detour route will utilize Depot St. and Lake Paran Rd.

Crews may begin shim coat paving along 67A.  Paving is dependent on the Route 7 progress.  It is also weather dependent, and inclement weather and wet conditions result in changes to the proposed schedule.
