Brattleboro West River Bridge project update


BRATTLEBORO — To reduce congestion on Interstate 91, Exit Three on ramps, both north and south, will be closed on Monday, Jan. 18 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The highway will remain open. Traffic will be diverted to Exit Two in Brattleboro and Exit Four in Putney.

The speed limit on Route 30 near the work zone has been reduced to 40 mph. Project-related truck activity on Route 30 will continue. Route 30 may be reduced to a single lane intermittently, with flaggers regulating traffic within the work zone. The project will not have any direct effects on Upper Dummerston Road the week of Jan. 18.

The West River Trail is open. There are intersections between construction access and the trail path, and users should exercise extreme caution at these intersections. As an additional safety precaution, users of the West River Trail are reminded to keep pets on a leash in this area.

A text alert system for the Brattleboro Bridge Replacement Project makes it possible to receive text notifications of closing of ramps, the interstate and Route 30. Sign up for this service by texting 313131 with the keyword I91Brat, or by using the signup widget at
