SHOREHAM — The Vermont Agency of Transportation on Monday closed the bridge on Route 74 over the Lemon Fair River in Shoreham just south of the Cornwall line.
A hole in the bridge deck was discovered by district maintenance forces early Monday morning, at which time the bridge was closed to one lane for the safety of the traveling public. Subsequent inspections revealed additional concerns with the concrete decks, and all traffic across the bridge was detoured as of 5 p.m. Monday evening.
