Route 17 bridge is open to traffic again

The Route 17 bridge over Otter Creek between New Haven and Weybridge has been rebuilt.
Vermont Agency of Transportation officials late last week announced that Bridge No. 8 was set to be open to traffic on Friday, July 27, weather permitting, but no later than this past weekend.
Officials were excited to announce that the $4 million project was completed on schedule, and in time for the Aug. 7 opening of the Addison County Fair and Field Days, which is staged at the nearby fairgrounds. Construction began in early June. 
Due to age and weather, the bridge, originally built in 1934, had a deteriorated deck, corroded steel, deficient railings and a sagging roadway, according to VTrans.
Drivers may notice some traffic control and one-lane traffic on Monday, July 30, as workers perform miscellaneous clean up.
