Congressman Welch nominates Essex Crescent Connector project to the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure

The Village President and Unified Manager were notified this week that Congressman Peter Welch has nominated the Crescent Connector Project connecting Routes 2A and 117 for member designation in the 2021 surface transportation reauthorization bill. The U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee is allowing members of Congress to submit requests for projects to be included in the bill.  The $5.4 million dollar Crescent Connector Project was submitted for consideration by VTrans and made it to the list of projects submitted by the Congressman.  The House T & I Committee plans to advance surface transportation authorization legislation later this spring.
