The West River Trail is OPEN. But please be aware that bridge construction may affect access at the southern trailhead. The trail is open from the northern trailhead to a point just north of the bridge construction area. The northern trailhead access location is on Rice Farm Road in Dummerston.
The week of Dec 15th, the trail will be closed at the Marina Trailhead and through access will not be permitted from the north, due to construction activities.
Signage at the Marina Trailhead and Rice Farm Road Trailhead will indicate current trail status. In addition, we will keep the project’s website up to date on the current status of the trail.
I-91 Brattleboro Bridge Replacement Project Update – Week of September 30, 2013
Truck activity on the West River Trail will begin to increase next week. The trail from the I-91 Bridges to the Marina Trailhead will be closed all next week. Thru access will not be allowed from the north due to construction.
PCL Construction and FIGG Engineering Co., the contractors that are doing the I-91 bridge work for VTrans, will be relocating the utility conduit by the bridge during the week of July 29th. The trail near the bridge will need to be closed while the work is being done. This will take 3-5 days, from Monday, July 29 through possibly Friday, August 2.
Next, the section of trail between the corn field and the bridge needs to be widened. If the permit is received, this work will take place August 5th and 6th. If the permit is not received, the widening will take place the last week in August.
In both cases, the trail north of the bridge will still be open. Happy Trails!
Notice: The Vermont Agency of Transportation will soon be beginning the process of rebuilding the I-91 bridges. This work will continue for the next two years and will include improvements to the trail from the Marina kiosk to I-91. The trail will offer a great view of the bridge rebuilding process. Intermittent trail closures and trail re-routing will occur during this time. We will do our best to let you know when the trail is closed by posting on the kiosk and on our website: http://www.westrivertrail.org.
