Quechee Gorge Fence Construction to Begin

Thursday, October 11, 2018

Quechee — The installation of a temporary fence at the Quechee Gorge will begin on Monday.

Construction will run from 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, during which traffic will be down to one lane over the bridge. There will be no work on the weekends, according to a news release from the state Agency of Transportation on Thursday.

One sidewalk will remain open at all times to pedestrians.

The project, which is one step in a list of measures to help prevent suicides at the gorge, is expected to take about 3½ weeks.
