Colchester I-89 Bridges Project

The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) has rehabilitated four bridges (Bridges 76 North and 76 South over Bay Road, and Bridges 77 North and 77 South over Mallett’s Creek) along Interstate 89 (I-89) in Colchester, Vermont. Construction began in April 2019 and was completed in June 2020. The project included six weekend bridge closures, while maintaining two-way traffic on I-89. The majority of the construction activities, including the four bridge replacements were completed during the 2019 construction season. In Spring 2020, crews returned to complete the minimal remaining punch list items. Visit the About the Project page on this website for more details.
