MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury selectboard on Tuesday revisited the upcoming effort to replace the downtown rail bridges and rebuild the railroad through downtown Middlebury, a state and federally funded project expected to run from 2018 to 2020 and include major disruption to the downtown in its final summer.

Chairman Brian Carpenter said the latest he heard from the Agency of Transportation is that agency officials are leaning toward installing temporary bridges sooner, rather than later, in order to make the entire project run more smoothly.

VERGENNES — A meticulous Monday afternoon recount at Vergennes City Hall confirmed the March 7 results of the race for city mayor: Former three-term Mayor Mike Daniels edged two-term incumbent Bill Benton, 270-265.

That margin, one that is less than 1 percent of the votes cast on Town Meeting Day, remained unchanged after two hours of painstaking counting by five members of the Vergennes Board of Civil Authority: Justices of the Peace Barry Aldinger, Lynn Pope and Rena Trepanier, and Aldermen Lowell Bertrand and Mark Koenig.
