Kingsley Bridge Closure Update

TOWN OF CLARENDON   Kingsley bridge- closure notice KINGSLEY COVERED BRIDGE CLOSURE NOTICE Clarendon, VT The Kingsley Covered Bridge will be closed from May 15, 2023- February 29, 2024. Gorge Road will be closed to thru traffic. Alternate route to reach East Street is via Bump Road.   RE: UPDATED CLOSURE DATES Upon VTrans request, the Town of Clarendon Select Board, at their 11/29/22 emergency meeting, approved the closing of the Kingsley Covered Bridge to take place on May 15, 2023 and re-open on February 29, 2024.

Hopefully, this change in the construction schedule will attract more bidders and result in a more economical construction...
