Ravine Road Bridge opens Wednesday, Nov. 27


KILLINGTON - The Town of Killington has completed its final repair project from Tropical Storm Irene.  The new Ravine Road Bridge will open to traffic on Wednesday, Nov. 27.
The new 38-foot poured concrete span replaces a pipe arch culvert that was severely damaged in the flooding caused by Tropical Storm Irene. The comprehensive construction project included the installation of the bridge and its components, road reconstruction, repairs of various washouts, bank stabilization and stream grading. The Town managed the project, which was executed by Markowski Construction with engineering by Enman Kesselring Consulting.
The total cost of the Ravine Road Bridge Project came in at approximately $425,000, with a portion of the expense covered by FEMA and additional state reimbursements. The majority of costs were paid for by the town.
"It's been a very long road to recovery since Irene wreaked havoc on our town, and the opening of this bridge signifies our community's amazing resilience," says Webb. "Ravine Road provides important and convenient access from Killington Road to the residential areas on Roaring Brook Road, and on up to East Mountain Road. I know a lot of residents and visitors will be very happy to see this road open again."
