Josh Road Bridge Inspection
Selectmen Lewis Sumner and Brad Rafus met with VTrans representatives Meghan Brunk, Marc Pickering, and Sven Scribner (structural engineer) at 9:00 a.m. at the Josh Road bridge (#31) to examine the structure and consider improvements which would permit an increase in the legal weight limit.
Josh Road, from its intersection with Jacksonville Stage Road and including the bridge, is a Class 3 road; road and bridge maintenance is eligible for state-funded assistance. The road provides access to several properties, and to Stafford Cemetery.
VTrans will be providing the Selectboard with recommendations and cost estimates for an upgrade to the bridge.
Participants left the site at 10:00 a.m.
