TOWN OF CLARENDON
KINGSLEY COVERED BRIDGE REHAB
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. The actual project completion date (ie. final paving etc.) would be May 31, 2024.
This is a change from the project schedule originally discussed, but in reviewing the extent of work needed, this time extension is necessary. Construction prices have risen drastically in the last 12 months and VTrans has seen limited competitive bidding on the project. Hopefully, this change in the construction schedule will attract more bidders and result in a more economical construction cost.
