Exit 17 redesign concept inches forward

Four years after a scoping study was completed, state planners have begun the second phase in a long process to fix traffic congestion and safety at the Exit 17 Interstate 89 interchange. Planners from the Vermont Agency of Transportation and consulting firm VHB hosted a public hearing on proposed changes at Chimney Corners last Wednesday night, summarizing the congestion-easing measures that theoretically won’t be built until 2023. The plan is to replace the 1960s-era, structurally deficient, two-lane bridge, adding additional approach and turn lanes and leaving room for bicycle and pedestrian traffic at a cost of more than $30...

Murals to spruce up Bombardier Park dugouts

By this summer, the seven baseball dugouts in Bombardier Park will be a lot less drab. The Milton Artists’ Guild has hired muralist Jon Young to lead a community-wide mural painting project in the park on June 16, thanks to state grant funds.
