Bennington Guard armory being cleaned of lead contamination

BENNINGTON - The National Guard armory is undergoing an intensive cleaning of the basement and other areas with the aim of reducing lead dust test readings to below the Guard’s new stricter standard.

In part because of the ongoing cleanup and other renovation work, the town remains interested in acquiring the building, Town Manager Stuart Hurd said this week, although he said any agreement would not be likely to move forward for several years.

The two-story brick structure at 100 Franklin Lane was constructed in 1924 and sits behind the town offices. It has been eyed for a municipal building to house the Public Works Department and other town offices, and possibly for town meeting space or a youth center.
