Jamaica Bridges Built Under Accelerated Program

Oct 21, 2013

A bridge leading vehicles along Route 100 from Jamaica toward Wardsboro is nearly complete as part of the "Accelerated Bridge" program designed by the state.

The bridge had been destroyed as a result of Tropical Storm Irene in 2011 and a temporary bridge had been put up in its place.

The Brattleboro Reformer reports the new bridge project started in April.

The bridge program accelerates the design process, permitting and right-ofway by doing different activities at the same time.

This is the second project in Jamaica to be approved for the state's program. The other bridge, which is along Route 30, near the Jamaica Town Office, was completed last week.
