What’s happening this week in Middlebury
Next week (June 25-29) there will be a few short, intermittent stops of traffic on Main Street (Route 30) and Merchants Row in downtown Middlebury, while blasting continues for the Middlebury Bridge & Rail Project. Traffic delay may last up to five minutes. Blasting may occur Monday to Friday.
The blasting site is the former Lazarus building site, located between the bank and post office on Main Street, next to Printer’s Alley.
All traffic – motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians - will not be allowed to travel on Main Street/Route 30, between Seymour Street and Main Street/Merchants Row intersection, and on Merchants Row, between South Pleasant Street and Main Street/Merchants Row intersection, while the contractor for the Middlebury Bridge & Rail Project performs a blasting operation.
The launch pit, the center point of the new downtown drainage system, now stands at a depth of 18 feet. It will eventually have a depth of 38 feet.
