BRIDGE CLOSURE- Marshall Avenue

The temporary bridge that connects Marshall Avenue to Kimball Avenue in South Burlington has been closed indefinitely due to damage sustained from the Halloween storm.

The culvert the temporary bridge spans has failed, and stormwater damage has created unstable slopes on both sides of the Muddy Brook. Town Officials have been advised by the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) the bridge is vulnerable in its current state and unsafe for use. Therefore, the bridge will be closed to all vehicular, pedestrian and bicycle traffic until further notice. Town Officials will continue to evaluate options with VTrans for possible solutions to reopen the temporary bridge in a safe condition for travel.

A permanent solution for a new culvert and crossing at this location is currently in the design stage.

Terence Cuneo, who had to relocate his family after Vermont Gas used the threat of eminent domain to condemn his property in order to build the ANGP pipeline, speaks about that experience-- and the need for bills like H.175, H.51, and S.66.

(Thank you, Mari Cordes, Mary Sullivan, and Vermont State Senator Alison Clarkson for introducing this important legislation!)

We need to prevent any new large-scale fossil fuel infrastructure from being built-- for the good of our community, our families, and our future on this planet!

The staff of the Williston Observer is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Daniel Fuller. Dan was one of the wonderful people that maintained the office building where the Williston Observer has been for many years. Dan always had a smile on his face, creative solutions to problems and loved to engage in joking banter with all of us. His smile lit up the office whenever he visited and we will all miss him very much. Our condolences to his family and friends at this most difficult time.
DANIEL FULLER
Colchester - Daniel J Fuller, 52, passed away at home unexpectedly on December 18th, 2018. He was born on April 3rd, 1966 to Dorothy and Donald Fuller Sr. He is survived by his brothers Donald Jr. "Buzzy", and Dwayne Fuller and his wife Michelle, as well as his sisters Donna Haley, Denise Zuber, Darlene Giroux, Debbie Chicoine and her husband Mark . He is also survived by many nieces and nephews. Daniel was predeceased by his father Donald Fuller Sr on October 27th 2011, and his brother in-law David Zuber, in 2009.
Daniel graduated from CVU and attended 2 years of VTC. He worked for Omega in maintenance. He took pride in his work, and the many years he spent building the foundation for The Crate Escape.
Daniel was truly one of a kind and it's truly hard to put into words how this loss has pained us all.
Calling hours were at LaVigne Funeral Home, 132 Main Street Winooski, on Friday, Dec. 21 from 1-3pm with a service at 3pm. A graveside service will follow in the Spring.
