 Town of Bennington Project List

Week of May 29 – June 02, 2017


REMINDER: Town Office will be CLOSED Monday May 29, 2017 in observance of the Memorial Day Holiday.


Coleville Road: A crew will be finishing culvert work on Coleville Road as well as stump removals and trimming in preparation for paving this summer.  This may require lane restrictions as men and equipment will be in or on the edge of the roadway.  Please use caution when approaching



Please be advised Dewey Street will be closed to through traffic between Monument Avenue and Blackberry Lane (only).  This construction project is expected to run through July 14th. Local traffic only will be accommodated Monday through Friday from 7:00am to 5:00pm


Townwide: Across at various locations the Highway Department will be patching roadways and sidewalks as well as painting road markings.  Some lanes therefore will be blocked.  Please yield to traffic and use caution when approaching these areas.


 Hydrant Flushing

Due to the weather, Town’s Semi-Annual Hydrant Flushing will continue Tuesday May 30th through June 2nd.   This is a State-Mandated program executed every Spring and Fall.  Some residents may experience low water pressure and/or discolored water temporarily.  These are normal side effects of the program and cause no harmful effects.   If you are experiencing these issues, please refrain from doing light colored laundry and run your cold-water tap (only) until water is clear.



Please DO NOT rake or blow leaves into Town streets or Highways as this clogs storm drains and creates flooding and driving hazards for the entire community.

Residents and Contractors – Please make sure all loads are covered when taking leaves and or brush to the transfer station.
