BRANDON, Vt. (AP) - Construction officials say the effort to rebuild a busy road that has a dangerous turn in downtown Brandon, Vermont, will start later this summer.

John and Joe Casella of Casella Construction Co. say the Route 7 project starts in August and is scheduled for completion in 2019.

The Rutland Herald (https://bit.ly/2qOVnMt ) reports the project is centered on improving an area known as “Bank Corner” where at least one person has been killed. State Rep. Steve Carr, D-Brandon, says a few trucks have overturned at the corner because of its rising turn.

Brandon voters approved a 5 percent local share of the previously estimated $15 million project. Officials say the town will use local sales tax funds to cover additional costs required by the now-estimated $20.8 million project.
