The Vermont Agency of Transportation has released the status of bridge load ratings on the Western Corridor. This is state owned track, run by the Vermont Railway, on which the state is responsible for bridge maintainance.
From North Bennington to Rutland there are 40 bridges. 23 have been load rated. Only 5 of these are rated for the national 286,000 lb weight limit. Four more are proposed for work in FY 2014 to bring them to this standard, including bridges in Clarendon, Dorset, Manchester, Sunderland and Shaftsbury.
From Rutland to Burlington there are 42 bridges. 24 have been load rated. 18 are rated for 286,000 lbs. Four more are proposed for work in 2014 to bring them to this standard, including bridges in New Haven, Middlebury, Salsbury and Pittsford. Bridge 219 in Pittsford at Florence is the last barrier to bringing 286,000 lb railcars to Omya.
