BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - Crews in Vermont have broken ground on a project to replace a senior housing complex that was heavily damaged by Tropical Storm Irene.

Vermont Public Radio reports ( ) work is underway in West Brattleboro on the Red Clover Commons, a 55-unit housing complex that will replace 80 units of affordable senior housing lost at Melrose Terrace.

The housing authority is currently in the process of finding a second site for approximately 25 residents who won’t be able to live in Red Clover.

It’s taken four years to break ground on the project, and officials say the budget has jumped from an estimated $12 million to almost $16 million.

The first residents are expected to move into the apartments by September of next year.
