Public hearings this week on Proctor bicycle-pedestrian path
PROCTOR, Vt. (AP) — Public hearings are set this week on a $600,000 pedestrian-bicycle path project in in the Vermont town of Proctor and repairs to a bridge over a railroad.
Town Manager Stan Wilbur says both hearings will be held Wednesday at the Proctor Free Library. The first hearing begins at 6 p.m.
The Rutland Herald reports the pedestrian-bicycle path project would run north of Main Street, near Electric Avenue, and head west to the south end of Beaver Pond.
Wilbur says the Agency of Transportation has awarded the town federal funds that will cover 80% of the cost. The town will have to pay $120,000.
He says that if current plans go forward as scheduled, construction should be completed in 2021.
