VTrans Public Information Meetings – Exit 6

 

VTRANS Public Information Meetings
Public Meetings are scheduled to present the public with information on the I-89 Exit 6 ledge removal and closure period during the summer of 2019. Blasting operations will be required throughout the course of this project, and as a result traffic will be maintained along I-89 using rolling road blocks. It is anticipated however that Exit 6 will be closed for approximately six (6) weeks while work is being conducted to the adjacent ledge area along Exit 6. Discussion of the scope of work necessitating the closure will be addressed.
Meetings will provide information on the construction schedule, detour route, and sources of information during construction.
Barre City – 1/8/19 at 7:00 PM
Berlin – 1/17/19 at 7:00 PM
For additional details on location of the meetings and any questions should be directed to project outreach coordinator Natalie Boyle at (802) 855-3893 or nboyle@eivtech.comhere.

Central Vermont Fiber

Jeremy Hansen, founder and chair of the governing board of CV Internet, which is currently rebranding as CV Fiber (CVF) recently provided a presentation to CVRPC’s Executive Committee.  Currently CVF is in a heavy organizational phase and hopes to initiate a pilot project in the Central Vermont region by the end of 2019. Jeremy noted that vast areas of Central Vermont do not have good internet access.  CVF has created a communications union district which  towns within our region may join.

It was noted by Bonnie Waninger, Executive Director of CVRPC, that those towns who join CVF would also need to integrate this into future town plans.

Executive Committee Chair Julie Potter requested that when CVF is nearing the launch of a pilot project that they participate in a full Board meeting to advise the Commissioners of the status of the organization and proposed project.
