VT 116 Bridge Is Opening In Bristol, Finally

Traveling Vermont 116 in Bristol is about to get a whole lot easier. This afternoon, local and state officials will be on hand for the grand opening of a new 368-foot span over the New Haven River.

"Travelers have been dealing with delays in the area for years with a one-lane temporary bridge," a Vermont Agency of Transportation media alert states. And although work on the bridge won't be finished until the spring, it will be open to traffic after the ceremony at 1 p.m. today.

VTrans has posted a YouTube video about the project. Check it out:
