Crumbling retaining wall prompts closure of Lower Green Street

BRATTLEBORO — The Brattleboro Department of Public Works has closed Lower Green Street from Retting Place to High Street until further notice.

According to the DPW, a stone retaining wall below lower Green Street is failing and the roadway is being closed for public safety.

On Monday morning, a section of Harmony Parking Lot was closed so D&E Tree Service could remove trees on the bank between the Harmony Lot and Green Street. The parking lot was reopened later that day.

The Green Street road closure and tree removal are part of an immediate public safety plan.

Stevens Engineering of Brattleboro has met with DPW staff and is developing plans for repairing or replacing the wall.
