HEBRON — The culvert under Bog Brook Bridge on Station Road will be replaced this summer using nearly $100,000 in grant and town funds.

Annual town meeting voters Saturday approved using $20,000 from the town and $78,000 in block grant funds.

The work is going out to bid, selectmen Chairman Richard Deans said Wednesday.

The steel plate culvert is 12 feet in diameter. The state Department of Transportation said it must be replaced.

The work is expected to be done this summer to avoid any conflict with transporting Hebron Station School students and to coincide with when the brook is at its lowest depth.

Deans said the road-closure plan has not been worked out yet, but traffic will be disrupted as little as possible. The Storekeepers and Bruno’s Garage are on the road.

“There’s no easy or short detour,” he said.

Additionally, town officials must make sure that rescue, police and fire officials can access the road during construction. Deans said they will probably talk to Buckfield officials about placing one of the town’s trucks there for easier access to that end of the road.
