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
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."
