BF 0125(6) Grafton

Replacement of Bridge No. 20 on FAS-0125 in Grafton over the Saxtons River.

Project Location: Town of Grafton in Windham County on FAS Route 125 (Town Highway 1) over Saxtons River. The bridge is located approximately 1.2 miles east of the junction with VT Route 35N. 

The Grafton Bridge 20 project includes a full bridge replacement of the 191-foot long 3-span rolled beam bridge with a 210-foot long 2-span girder bridge founded on integral abutments and an integral pier drill shaft foundation. The existing structure currently has a deck rating of 5 (fair), a superstructure rating of 5 (fair), and a substructure rating of 6 (satisfactory). This bridge was constructed in 1937 and reconstructed and widened in 1972. 

The new bridge will be constructed off alignment, slightly to the north, so traffic can be maintained on the existing bridge. During construction two-way traffic will be maintained in one lane via traffic signals at each end of the project, side road, and drive. The new bridge’s fascia will be located several feet north of the centerline of the existing bridge. Concrete barriers will be placed longitudinally along centerline to maintain adequate widths for trucks and farm equipment traveling FAS-0125 through the project.
