Welcome to Joe's Pond Vermont
A kind couple from Massachusetts came to the Dimick cottage on West Shore Road with a sweet female dog they found wandering along Route 2. She is mixed breed, possibly a little ridge-back in her, medium size, about 35-40 lbs., golden coat, very skinny like she's been lost for a while, and ravenous. She has a blue collar but no tags. We are anxious to find her owners as the Dimick dog is not happy about sharing her home with a stranger. We have left a message for the animal control officer, Joe Guertin, 748-4230, but she has not called back. If you know this dog or are her owner, please contact Bob Dimick at 563-2481. Bob is at 1809 West Shore Road, at the corner of Barre Avenue. He and Theresa have the dog because they were the first people the Massachusetts people came upon after rescuing her. She is safe, being fed and cared for, but needs to be reunited with her family
July 31, 2015 – Bridge 83 located on VT 15 in Walden opened to all traffic this afternoon, 2-days ahead of schedule. The bridge closed on July 6th, 2015 to all traffic and was scheduled to remain closed until Sunday, August 2, 2015. During the closure period, crews dismantled and removed the old bridge and constructed the new bridge using Accelerated Bridge Construction methods. Work to replace the bridge included placing new concrete footings and abutments, a new bridge deck using prestressed concrete NEXT D Beams and guardrail. The roadway approaches were also reconstructed and paved. Attached is a photograph of the new bridge just after it was opened to traffic this afternoon. Construction is scheduled to continue on the bridge through the end of August. However, the contractor has until October to complete the project. Remaining work on the project includes line striping, site restoration and miscellaneous punch list items. While crews work to complete the project, travel will be reduced to one lane over the bridge daily with flaggers assisting in maintaining traffic flow. Motorists can expect traffic delays from daily lane closures on the bridge as crews work to complete the project.
On one of the three ponds. White, brand new. If found, call Marc Gregoire, 476-5889. Posted 6/23/2015.
