BRATTLEBORO -- Three government agencies overseeing the replacement of the bridge connecting Brattleboro to New Hampshire have announced the availability of a draft environmental assessment and will welcome comments about it at an upcoming public meeting.
The Federal Highway Administration, the New Hampshire Department of Transportation and the Vermont Agency of Transportation have alerted the public -- as required by the National Environmental Policy Act -- to the meeting slated for 6 p.m. in Cusic Room 296 of the Windham Regional Career Center on Thursday, Aug. 1.
According to a public notice, there is currently a 30-day public-comment period for people to send written comments about the draft environmental assessment. Comments can be sent to: Jacqueline Dagesse, of EIV Technical Services, 55 Leroy Road, Ste 15, Williston, VT 05495, or at [email protected]
The public meeting in August will be held to provide information and receive oral and written comments from citizens. All interested individuals, as well as federal, state and local agencies, are invited.
Hard copies and the electronic files of the draft assessment are available for viewing at the Brattleboro Town Office, the Hinsdale, N.H., Town Office, VTrans, NHDOT, the Brooks Memorial Library, the Hinsdale Public Library, the Windham Regional Planning Commission, the Southwest Region Planning Commission and the Vermont and New Hampshire offices of the Federal Highway Administration.
Brattleboro is connected to Hinsdale, N.H., by two Pennsylvania truss bridges that were built in 1920. The Anna Hunt Marsh Bridge connects Brattleboro to Hinsdale Island, which is connected to Hinsdale by the Charles Dana Bridge. JB Mack, the principal planner for the Southwest Region Planning Commission, previously told the Reformer that federal highway standards dictate the bridges are too narrow and have insufficient weight limits and

They could have built three bridge for the cost of all the new bridge studies they have done over the last thirty years with this bridge...

the worst that could happen with a bridge is it collapses and a few people die
meanwhile the Dirty Bomb (nuke plant) just down the road keeps ticking away, aged beyond its 40 year designed operation time, and the worst that could happen with that is More likely to happen than any bridge collapse, and we've seen how MEGA death by cancer occurs after one of them melts down
Even after Chernobyl killing 1 million and with the high rate of stage one cancer in Many Fukushima children the sheeple still have their heads in the sand

"Public meeting to discuss draft environmenta"
Ask them what the environmental impact of an oil or propane truck taking a dive off of the current bridges!

And how many times has that happened since the 1920s when the 2 bridges were made?
More than likely we'll see Many More nuke plants go Ka-blooey B4 we ever see a truck driver of oil etc. going way too fast and somehow 'dive' through the steel girders on the sides of the bridges (which are not rusting away)--

Those f-ing bridges need to come down and stay down! They've only helped the mostly flatlander sheeple be able to drive to the NH side so they can buy plastic made in China sh't at Walmart, and of course greatly worsening 'Malfunction Junction' for years.
There has never been a good reason for any Vermonter to want to cross over to NH, especially to that podunck craptastic Hinsdale

I know the outcome of the meeting..."no new bridge for 50 years".
It is to give the appearance of motion for the politicians.
