There will be a US 2 road closure and detour by the Town of Richmond, in Richmond, planned on the weekend of June 23-24, 2018 for a replacement of a failed storm water pipe across US 2. There will be a detour around the closed section (at the south side of the 4-corner intersection of US 2), this detour will be via: US 2 Richmond four corners, Bridge St. to Cochran Rd and back onto US 2 in Jonesville. Message boards will be installed notifying of the planned closure, detour signs will be up, as well as signs for advance warning. This will be the same US 2 detour as when the Snipe Ireland Bridge was replaced, this closure is for two weekend days.

The storm water culvert underneath Route 2 at the light, between the Harley Brown building and GreenSea, is failing and in need of immediate replacement.  The town has hired J. Hutchins to do this work, and due to the complexity of excavating and replacing the culvert, the road must be closed for two days.  The detour route will be around Cochran Road, similar to how it was last Summer (just that the road closure will be in a different location this time).  Some pavement shimming in the area to correct recent settlement will also occur.  We anticipate that by Sunday evening that the road will be back open and ride much smoother than it does now.  If you have any questions, please contact the Manager at 434-5170, or email:

Thank you to all who came to our first listening session on the 29th.  It was good to finally get the topic kicked off, and we received quite a bit of feedback.  Of course, we have a long way to go.  The next step is gathering and presenting some data.  Our goals are to identify services and understand priorities – where we are now, and where we want to be.  The next listening session will be on June 14th at 7:00 pm in Town Center.  Stay tuned for a dedicated page on our website and a link to a cloud drive containing a variety of documents.  We look forward to seeing you then, and if you have any questions, please call Geoffrey Urbanik, Town Manager, at 434-5170.

A Regional Concerns Meeting for the replacement of the US Route 2 bridge over Interstate 89 just east of the Richmond Fire Department will be held on Monday, June 11th, 2018 beginning at 7:00 PM at the Richmond Town Center Meeting Room, located at 203 Bridge Street in Richmond, VT.  The meeting will be held by the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) and the Town of Richmond.

The preferred alternative includes maintaining traffic on the existing structure while a new bridge is constructed off-alignment.

The intent of the meeting is to provide an overview of this project to Town Officials, local residents and businesses, emergency services and other interested parties. There will be a review of the existing site conditions, proposed work, and overall schedule followed by a question and answer period.  Representatives from both VTrans and the Town of Richmond will be available at the meeting to address public concerns about the project.

A copy of the Scoping Report for this project may be seen at the office of the Town Clerk in Richmond, Vermont or at the Structures Section of the Agency of Transportation’s office in Montpelier, Vermont.  An electronic copy is also available online at:
