In June 2017, East Montpelier was awarded transportation funding to conduct a safety study of the Towne Hill, Gallison Hill, and Brazier Roads intersection area. Lamoureux & Dickinson Consulting Engineers and Broadreach Planning & Design are the consultants performing the study. This is very much a fast-tracked project — the study will be completed by the end of the year. There were a number of public feedback events, the last of which was held on November 20, 2017, 6:30 p.m. at the town office building as part of the Selectboard meeting. The final study report will be available in the near future.
