E. Pleasant and Triangle Streets Improvements

Last Updated: July 25, 2017

Current Status:   As of July 25th, 2017

Warner Bros. will be moving in materials and grading the intersection Wednesday, July 26th  through Friday, July 28th.  The Base course of asphalt will be installed on Saturday, July 29th. The intersection will remain closed during this time.

Once the base course is installed the current work area will shrink. Traffic will continue to be detoured in accordance with the posted detour plan.

During this time the gas company will be making adjustments to their service line. Verizon is continuing to switch over customers to the new underground service.

Please seek alternate routes to avoid the closed intersection.

Access to businesses on Triangle St and E Pleasant St will remain open.

Project Scope:  This project will improve the intersection function during peak traffic times.

Project History:  At the February 2016 Public Works Commission meeting a design was proposed, considered, and with some slight amendments made, a motion was moved in its favor (Passed 5-0-0).  On March 14th, 2016, the plan concept was approved by the Selectboard at their meeting.
