Guilford bridge closure begins July 28


GUILFORD -- The Green River Covered Bridge will be closed to all traffic (vehicular and pedestrian) starting Monday, July 28, through Friday, Sept. 15. Starting Wednesday, Aug. 27, the bridge will reopen for pedestrian traffic only.

The town of Guilford has contracted with Zaluzny Excavating Corp., in partnership with Welch Masonry LLC, to reconstruct the northwest wing wall of the Green River Covered Bridge. The project will involve excavation of the west side section of Stage Road near the approach to the covered bridge. River Road as it junctures with Stage Road will remain open to through traffic but please expect delays.

Any updates for this project will be posted on the main page of the Town' official website at For more information, email
