EAST MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — A bridge in East Montpelier will be closed part of this week and next week while work continues to replace it.
The Route 14 bridge at the intersection of Route 2 is expected to be closed Wednesday through Friday and four days next week.
The Barre Montpelier Times Argus reports that the recommended detour to reach Barre from East Montpelier will be Route 2 to the Barre-Montpelier Road, or Route 302.
Construction to replace the bridge started last summer. The work is expected to add a traffic signal and a third lane for turning vehicles and make improvements to Routes 2 and 14 near the bridge.
