News for you Vermonters out there who are from the Cavendish area or who travel through it. There is an expected road closure on the schedule starting next Monday on Cavendish Gulf Road which will allow for a slope stabilization project. Casella Construction Incorporated, with a nearly $500,000 bid will be completing the the work which will fortify the embankment along the Green Mountain Railroad Corporation’s rail line.
The stabilization work will be done using soil nails and shotcrete, which will have a natural brown “kahlua” stain to it. In addition to the embankment work, crews will also be cleaning out the stone culvert beneath the railroad bridge.
The project will start August 22nd and the road will be closed from 7 AM to 6 PM every day until September 18th, which is the project end date. The road will still be worked on until October 28th, but the road will remain open during that time.
The project’s contract was awarded last month in July and the project manager is Kyle Wells. If you want any further information on this project and how it may affect your commute, feel free to contact the Vermont Agency of Transportation at 802-324-5522.
