UPDATED: Heading to Brattleboro?  Attention Jacksonville Stage Road Drivers!

Guilford’s Green River Covered Bridge will be closed to ALL traffic (vehicular and pedestrian) through Monday, October 22nd (EXTENDED FROM ORIGINAL CLOSURE).

The Town of Guilford has planned the reconstruction of the northwest wing wall of the Green River Covered Bridge. The project will involve excavation of the west side section of Stage Road near the approach to the covered bridge.
