Creek Road guardrail approved in Middlebury

MIDDLEBURY — At their Aug. 13 meeting, members of the Middlebury selectboard unanimously agreed to install a combined total of 1,340 linear feet of guardrail along around a dozen sections of Creek Road to steer drivers away from the riverbank and deteriorating portions of the flood-damaged roadway. 

Creek Road will become one way in the sections where guardrail is installed, along a stretch that begins near the Bingham property and extends to the vicinity of the Perrin property. A map of the guardrail locations can be found by logging on to tinyurl.com/ y58du6xr. 

The selectboard made its decision after chatting with the Bingham and Perrin families, who want to maintain safe access to their homes. Officials are studying a long-term solution for Creek Road, which sustains major damage following flood events and has become a very expensive road to maintain for the relatively few residents who live beyond the Vermont Agency of Transportation garage at 341 Creek Rd.
