    Woodstock Bridge Replacement Project Public Pre-Closure Meeting

    This spring, VTrans is planning to replace a bridge located on VT Route 106 south of Woodstock village in the Town of Woodstock.  The bridge spans Kedron Brook and is located between Kendall Road and Bryant Road.  

    The existing bridge has deteriorated and does not meet current design standards of width and hydraulics. The new bridge will have two 11-foot travel lanes and 4-foot shoulders, and will be lengthened to improve its hydraulic capacity.

    During construction, VT Route 106 in the immediate vicinity of the bridge will be closed for at most 21 days starting as early as May 12th, and ending no later than June 6th.  

    The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) will hold a public pre-closure meeting for the project on Wednesday, April 27th, 2016 at 6:30 PM at the ­­­Woodstock Town Hall on the green.

    The purpose of the meeting is to provide an overview of this project to town officials, local residents and businesses, emergency services and other interested parties. Presenters will review  the existing site conditions, proposed work, detour, and schedule.  Representatives from VTrans and the Town of Woodstock will be available to answer questions.

    If you would like more information about this project, or would like to receive e-mail updates, please contact Cindy Cook, Woodstockbridge@adamantaccord.com, 802-917-5055.

About The Project(s)

The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) is undertaking bridge replacement projects in the Towns of Andover, Weston, Ludlow, Killington and Woodstock Village over a four year period, beginning with construction of Andover VT 11 Bridge 41 in July 2015.

The bridge replacement projects include:

Construction of each bridge will require a bridge closure period. During the bridge closure, traffic will be routed onto a Detour Route for Andover VT 11 Bridge 41.

All of the bridges will be constructed using Accelerated Bridge Construction methods to expedite construction and reduce impacts to the public.

We hope that you will visit this website frequently for project updates, and information on construction activities and travel routes during the construction period.
