Stop (and start) and smell the flowers: Repair work will slow traffic and close sidewalk on Routes 4 & 5 bridge in WRJ
Planning to cross the Routes 4 & 5 bridge in downtown White River Junction next week? You might want to leave a little extra time.
From Aug. 20-24, state road crews will be patching potholes and getting the span ready for repaving. During that time, traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction and the sidewalk will be closed to foot traffic.
What's a commuter to do? Since you may be waiting there longer than usual, perhaps look up from your phone and admire the flowers blooming in the median.
