Dummerston, Vt., November 20, 2009 - The West Dummerston Covered Bridge will close on November 30 until December 14 to repair the surface of the bridge deck.
Renaud Bros., Inc., will do the work. About 1,500 vehicles use the bridge daily every day. The green iron bridge near Stickney Brook Road just off Route 30 is the only other bridge to cross West River in the town.
The 280-foot, two-span West Dummerston Bridge was built in 1872 using Ithiel Town's lattice truss.
