Weary travelers fear no more. All information centers in Vermont are open for the July 4th weekend, the Department of Buildings and General Services announced Monday.
The pandemic had shut down information centers in the state leaving visitors without easily accessible restrooms and dining options during their travels.
Now all information centers are open for business, according to the department.
“We’re excited to be able to provide these services again across the state,” said Buildings and General Services Commissioner Jennifer M.V. Fitch in a statement. “Like any other business restarting, it will take time to get every element fully operational, but we now feel we can provide a positive experience for the travelling public.”
- Open daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.: Bennington, Fair Haven, Guilford, Hartford, Sharon, Waterford and Williston.
- Open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.: Bradford, Derby, Georgia, Lyndonville and Randolph.
- Open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.: Alburgh
- Open 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.: Monday – Friday and 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.: Saturday and Sunday: Capital Region
- Open 24 hours daily: Maplewood
In 2019, information centers across Vermont recorded 3 million visits, according to the department. Information centers provide much more than safety breaks for travelers as they are used as a marketing tool for Vermont small businesses and attractions, the department said in a statement.
