WOODBURY – Middle Quarter Road will be closed beginning June 10 for the replacement the Middle Quarter Road Bridge.
Replacement of the one-lane bridge, near the corner of Main St. S., will be paid for by the state. Rich Lamothe, Woodbury’s Director of Public Works, said in 2017 that the state requires that any one-way bridges be replaced with a two-way bridge. So the town will replace the one-way bridge with a two-way concrete cross-culvert, but narrow the width with planters so it will maintain its aesthetics as a one-way bridge. A stop sign will be placed at each end of the new culvert.
Detour signs for traffic will be in place for the duration of the closure.
The road will remain closed for two months or until the project is complete, according to the Woodbury Department of Public Works.
