ALBION – Today may be the last chance to drive over the Clarendon Street bridge in Albion. Detour signs have been posted this week, and signs just south and north of the bridge announce that removal of the bridge will start on Friday.

This photo was taken on Wednesday, south of the bridge over the railroad tracks.

Keeler Construction of Barre will tear out the bridge, which is about 50 years old. The highway embankments will be lowered and the street will be blocked off at a 90-degree angle at Crimson Drive. On the north side, it will also be blocked off with a turnaround spot near Childs Street.
