In our latest video from the Middlebury construction zone, we talk to project manager John Whitaker about the next big phase: the installation of the precast concrete tunnel pieces.
On Monday, July 13, crews removed Middlebury's Main Street bridge to make way for the construction of a new rail tunnel. The bridge removal marked the start of a 10-week intense period of construction in downtown Middlebury. Businesses remain open!
The Addison Independent is teaming up with Middlebury Community Television this summer to produce weekly video dispatches from the rail bridges project in downtown Middlebury. In the first one, we talk to project manager John Whitaker about the 300-ton crane that was erected last Monday.
FOR FOUR DECADES music lovers have gathered on the Middlebury town green during the summer to listen to and watch live performances. Such performances are out this summer, but MCTV will broadcast tape of 42 past Festival on the Green performances next week.

MIDDLEBURY — Coronavirus may have killed the live performances at the Festival on the Green, which for four decades has hosted a week of entertainment on the Middlebury town green during mid-summer, but the show will go on — on your television.
Festival organizers and Middlebury Community Television, or MCTV, have teamed up to offer a virtual retro festival for area music lovers. Because this would have been the 42nd year for the Festival on the Green, MCTV has graciously offered to show 42 different performances during what would have been this year’s festival week (July 12-17).
