New highway bridge going up across the West River in Brattleboro

The new span will take the place of the two rusting bridges that used to be there, one of which remains and is currently handling traffic in both directions.

The project seems to be going exactly according to plan, but it does make a person think about scale… This bridge is estimated to cost more than $60 million. People in Brattleboro are really agonizing over a budget shortfall of less than half a million this year.
