    Rochester/Middlebury/Warren Bridge Projects 2014 Construction Season Ending Soon

    As the end of the 2014 construction season approaches, five of the six bridge replacement projects included in the Rochester/Middlebury/Warren Bridge Projects project are complete and opened in record time including two weekend bridge replacement projects, Bridge 15 over Corporation Brook and Bridge 16 over Bingo Brook in Rochester on VT 73, along with a historic arch structure, Bridge 13 over the Middlebury River in East Middlebury on VT 125. 

    The bridges completed during the 2014 construction season include:

    • Middlebury VT 125 Bridge 13 over the Middlebury River
    • Rochester VT 73 Bridge 15 over Bingo Brook
    • Rochester VT 73 Bridge 16 over Corporation Brook
    • Rochester VT 73 Bridges 13 over Brandon Brook and
    • Warren VT 100 Bridge 166 over Mad River

    Completing the bridges ahead of schedule was made possible by VTrans' Accelerated Bridge Construction methods. Accelerated Bridge Construction, in which bridge components are built off site and assembled on site, reduces project cost, impacts to the public, and the duration of the construction period. This unprecedented effort required careful construction sequencing among the projects and heightened communication with the public.

    Construction is scheduled to continue on Bridge 19 in Rochester through the end of November.  The two lane temporary bridge will remain in place over the winter and continue to carry traffic over the White River. VT 100 will be open to two way traffic prior to the winter shutdown.  Bridge 19 will be completed in the spring and opened to traffic. 

    This the final construction update for the 2014 construction season.  The website will remain active. For more information, please visit the project website at www.rmw.vtransprojects.vermont.gov.
