Route 2 Moretown/Middlesex Bridge Now Open
MONTPELIER (August 28, 2008) The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) today opened a one-lane temporary bridge along Route 2 that spans the Winooski River and connects the towns of Middlesex and Moretown.
The temporary bridge was installed following the May 30 closure of an 80-year-old truss bridge that was deemed unsafe after an inspection. Transportation crews removed the old bridge, and in its place erected a one-lane temporary bridge that will remain in place until a new, permanent bridge can be constructed.
