Bernie Carr-Public Information Officer for Segment 6 project.

As of December 1st 2019 my position as PIO for the segment 6 road, infrastructure & streetscape construction project has come to an end. Any further contact and questions relating to the project should be directed to Town Manager Dave Atherton at 247-3635  ext-210.

I want to thank Casella, Dubois & King, the town management, the state and federal entities and the many sub-contractors with whom I had so much interaction! It was truly a learning experience and their professionalism and responsiveness was very much appreciated.

Most importantly, the residents of Brandon and the surrounding areas should be very proud of their ability to have coped with the massive intrusion that this project was on their daily lives and routines. Their patience, civility and support throughout made my job much easier.

For the business community, accessibility and the general mantra of avoiding Brandon, had a significant and burdensome impact on finances. Many thanks go out for their resolve to “keep their eye on the prize” and reap the benefits of the finished product. Their flexibility, patience and cooperation made the interaction with the contractors much more successful and contributed to the positive results we are now enjoying.

Along with many of you, I also had my home and business within the Segment 6 project limits. I feel this gave me the unique ability to empathize with the many large and small trials and tribulations that were encountered over the past 2 ½ years. Once again I thank you all and am so very proud of my town and my fellow Brandonites.
