Re: Bennington BF 1000(20) – Town Highway 2, VT Route 9, Bridge 6 over Walloomsac River

An Alternatives Presentation on the project listed above will be held on Monday, October 28th, 2019 beginning at 6:20 PM at the Bennington Fire Station, located at 130 River Street, 3rd Floor, Bennington, VT.  The meeting will be held jointly between the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) and the Town of Bennington Select Board.  The preferred alternative includes a full bridge replacement with traffic maintained on an off-site detour for 60 days.

The intent of the meeting is to provide an overview of this bridge replacement project to Town Officials, local residents and businesses, emergency services and other interested parties.  The presentation will include a review of the existing site conditions, proposed work, and overall schedule followed by a question and answer period.  Representatives from both VTrans and the Town of Bennington will be available at the meeting to address public concerns about the project.
