MIDDLEBURY — Part of Main Street in the heart of Middlebury will be closed for portions of this week to allow construction crews to replace sidewalk and curbs.
The thoroughfare between the roundabout and Merchants Row will be reduced to one lane between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. from Monday, Aug. 11, through Friday, Aug. 15. During that time, crews will replace sidewalk and curb on the northbound, or upstream, side of the bridge. Both lanes of traffic will reopen each evening at 5 p.m.
Flaggers will help direct traffic during construction, and town officials said pedestrians should use the sidewalk on the southbound, or downstream, side of the bridge to travel between Merchants Row and Mill Street.
Anyone with questions should call the Public Works Department at 388-4045.
