Presentation looks at alternatives for replacement of Whetstone Brook bridge

BRATTLEBORO — A presentation to discuss alternatives for replacement of a bridge over Whetstone Brook on Western Avenue (Route 9) just west of the intersection with Melrose Street is planned for Tuesday, Sept. 21, beginning at 6:15 p.m., in the Selectboard Meeting Room in the Municipal Center, 230 Main St.

The Vermont Agency of Transportation and the town will discuss the recommended alternative, which includes a full bridge replacement, with traffic maintained on a temporary bridge during construction.

The meeting is intended to provide an overview of this project to town officials, residents, and businesses, as well as emergency services and other interested parties.

AOT and town personnel will review the existing site conditions, proposed work, and overall schedule. They will answer questions and address public concerns.

The public is encouraged to participate via Zoom. Anyone attending in person will be required to wear a face mask, and limited seating will be available, as seats will be spaced 6 feet apart.
