Route 7, Segment 6 Project-
Even BETTER Brandon #5
As we progress with construction on the Even BETTER Brandon-Segment 6 project, we encourage you to continue to access information and photos of the project here at the Chamber of Commerce newsletter. We are confident that the process will continue to be informative and timely, as our contacts will continue to be Dubois & King engineering, working in concert with the town of Brandon and local Rutland based contractor Casella Construction. Jeff Chase, Casella's Project Manager, will be providing weekly narratives of work done, and work scheduled for the upcoming weeks. So this will be a valuable resource for all in the community and surrounding areas.
We will also have a page dedicated to the project at brandonbuilds.com. As we add more content to the page it will be another great resource for information concerning many aspects of the project.
