Middlebury A project engineering team continues to work on refining the construction timeline for the bridge replacements project in downtown Middlebury.
It is anticipated that early release work—such as pile driving tunnel supports and micro tunneling for drainage—will begin this fall.
The Main Street and Merchants Row bridges will remain open for travel while this preliminary work is being performed and traffic will not be affected—at least until next year.
Major construction on the bridges is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2015.
On June 1, Local Project Manager Bill Finger met with the members of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, located on the town green, to provide an overview of the project.
