Due to this week’s inclement weather, we may need to drive pile on Saturday,
October 25 at Bridge 8 adjacent to Upper Dummerston. We understand that the
noise from the pile driving may affect people in the area.
Unfortunately, this is a situation we cannot avoid because of equipment availability limitations. We will wait until 9:00 AM to begin driving operations. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
Based on weather forecasts, the closure of Upper Dummerston Road has been rescheduled to Wednesday, October 29th, from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM to allow work on the new bridge that will span Upper Dummerston Road. If this closure needs to be rescheduled due to weather, we will inform stakeholders a minimum of 72 hours in advance after the team is able to confirm forecasted weather conditions are acceptable for work to proceed.
An alternate route for the West River Trail that provides recreational use of the trail near the construction access road has been opened at the Marina Trailhead. Signage has been installed providing clear direction to recreational users of the trail. There are intersections between construction access and the trail; users are strongly encouraged to exercise extreme caution at these intersections. As an additional safety precaution, users of the West River Trail are reminded to keep pets on a leash when using the trail in this area.
