Expect delays in school traffic to Mount Abe

BRISTOL — With the start of the school year, the town of Bristol is reminding residents to expect traffic delays getting to and from Mount Abraham Union High School.
Construction to upgrade water and stormwater infrastructure along West Street is still ongoing. The project area is from Airport Drive to Maple Street. Expect heavy equipment and delays along this area. Munson Earthmoving began the town-contracted project in mid-June. Construction is expected to continue through late November.
While construction is ongoing, portions of the West Street sidewalk with also be closed. Residents are asked to use the sidewalk that runs on the south side of the Kountry Trailer Park when walking to and from MAUHS. To get to that sidewalk take Pleasant Street west to West Pleasant Street and turn north on Liberty Street. The entrance to the sidewalk is just north of the intersection of West Pleasant and Liberty.
To avoid the construction area, drivers can get the MAUHS by traveling South Street to Lover’s Lane and up Stoney Hill Road.
The town advises those traveling to MAUHS to allow an extra 10 to 15 minutes for delays.
The selectboard also noted the new electronic traffic sign that was installed at North and West streets this past Thursday=. Drivers traveling south on North Street and wanting to turn right onto West Street will now see a “No Right on Red” arrow when the pedestrian crossing button is activated. The town asks drivers to use caution at this intersection and be aware of this change.
