More than a year after a mudslide in West Rutland wiped out part of a busy road, repairs are back on track.
Dewey Ave is a residential street-- the route to Ira. In the spring of 2011 an embankment gave way, making travel in one of the lanes unsafe. Tropical Storm Irene put repairs on the back burner, but now the town has put the project out to bid and hopes repairs are wrapped up before winter.
"I thought this was a bad mudslide, and then when you look at the devastation around the state, we just knew we weren't a priority to anyone-- to the contractors, to the state itself. But it definitely needs to be fixed and it is a priority for our town," said Mary Ann Goulette, the town manager of West Rutland.
Bills are estimated to be five times the town's emergency budget allotment. So, officials are hoping state funding will come through.
