Planned Inspection of the Vilas Bridge in Walpole, NH – Bellows Fall, VT


The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) will be conducting a routine bridge inspection of the Vilas Bridge over the Connecticut River in Walpole, NH – Bellows Falls, VT, which will be supplemented with imagery obtained using a small Unmanned Aerial System (drone).

This inspection is scheduled for Thursday, July 20th, but could be delayed until the following week depending on the weather conditions. There will be no impact to traffic.

Built in 1930, the Vilas Bridge has been closed to traffic since 2009. The inspection will assist the NHDOT in planning for a potential future project
