Guilford Plans Covered Bridge Repairs

Print More

Guilford is planning work on its 141-year-old covered bridge.

Selectboard members voted Monday to hire the engineering firm of Hoyle, Tanner & Associates for rehabilitation work on the Green River covered bridge.

The Brattleboro Reformer reports the town hopes to have the construction work done in 2012.

The 104-foot long bridge was built in 1870, and has long been in decline. In January, the town got a $124,000 grant for its preservation through the state Agency of Transportation Enhancement program.

Hoyle Tanner has done construction work on 17 covered bridges in Vermont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts.
