Bennington to Continue Streetscape Project
The Vermont Department of Transportation has awarded the Town of Bennington with a grant for $150,000 to be used for long-term streetscape enhancements. Bennington will continue to improve their sidewalks and increase lighting in specific areas, including lower Pleasant Street, School Street and Main Street. An earlier phase of the streetscape project was completed on sections of Main and South Streets. Community Development officials hope that this initiative will attract more visitors to their downtown district for shopping, eating and perhaps overnight stays.
