    MIDDLEBURY — The Pulp Mill covered bridge in Middlebury and Weybridge will be closed for rehabilitation starting Jan. 3 through Nov. 16.

    The pedestrian bridge adjacent to the Pulp Mill bridge will be opened for the majority of the construction period but occasionally weekday closures to protect the public are expected. It will be closed while crane work is being done in close proximity to the pedestrian bridge.

    The rehabilitation of the Pulp Mill covered bridge will consist of replacing the deteriorated bridge members, installation of new siding and metal roof, substructure repairs, installation of approach railing and reconstruction of roadway approaches.

    The work will be completed by Alpine Construction, LLC of Schuylerville, N.Y., at a cost of approximately $1,638,629.

    The Pulp Mill covered bridge crosses Otter Creek and was built in 1820.
