Work on South Road in Williston will delay traffic for the next few weeks.

The project involves realigning the intersection with East Hill Road and making drainage improvements. The $80,500 project will be largely funded through a grant administered by the Champlain Water District, with the town contributing about $22,000, said Williston Public Works Director Neil Boyden.

The work will also include replacing a culvert, which will eliminate flooding of a nearby manure pit, Boyden said. Water from the area drains into Allen Brook.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane during the work, which Boyden said will take about a month. Motorists can expect minor delays.
South Road is located off Oak Hill Road, a short distance from U.S. 2 in Williston Village.

    I am writing in response to Mr. Hoxworth’s article on transportation costs for the poor in Vermont. I would like to suggest further research on this topic before we simply just give another handout or tax credit. The poor, may, have a higher disproportionate burden on their transportation costs than the wealthier residents of Vermont; however, they also have a lower disproportionate burden on taxes and housing. Pick your evil.
    We can simply just give every poor Vermonter an energy efficient car, gas card, free tuition, renter’s rebate, etc.…but the only way out of poverty is through the combination of education, hard work, and discipline. Education and degrees are not handed out or purchased; a person has to EARN them. This seems to be the only way out of poverty—sorry, there are no shortcuts.
    If we continue this trend of enabling, our entire state will be a welfare state.
