By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Peak fall foliage is long gone, but folks traveling through downtown Middlebury during the next few weeks will see quite a sight in the form of a major man-made attraction that, unlike the changing leaves, won’t return next year.

Vehicles bearing huge concrete beams — ranging in size from 65 feet to 110 feet long — were scheduled to wind their way on massive trucks through portions of the downtown on their way to the new Cross Street Bridge site on Nov. 19 and 20, and again on Dec. 1, 2, 3 and 4.
