About The Project(s)

The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) initiated this series of bridge replacement projects in 2015. In 2015 and 2016, projects were completed in Andover, Weston, and Woodstock. In 2017, VTrans is undertaking two bridge replacement projects in Ludlow. Projects in Woodstock Village and Killington are scheduled for construction in 2018.

The bridge replacement projects include:

Construction of each bridge will require a bridge closure period.

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

Please check this website frequently for project updates, and information on construction activities and travel routes during the construction period.
