Main Street Revitalization

2018 04 23 Winooski Main Street Perspective Sketch

Project Overview

The City of Winooski is improving the roadway along the Main Street (U.S. 2/7) corridor, starting at the New England Central Railroad bridge near the intersection with Maple Street and extending to the Winooski-Colchester town line near the Winooski School District. The Winooski Main Street Revitalization project will reconfigure the road layout to accommodate all roadway users. The project includes:

  • the installation of pedestrian and bicycle facilities, 
  • upgrades to traffic signal equipment, and
  • enhancements to roadway aesthetics such as street lighting and landscaping.

In addition, the project will significantly improve subsurface infrastructure. The project includes the installation of: 

  • new stormwater infrastructure,
  • sewer and water utilities, and 
  • the relocation of existing aerial power and telecommunication lines underground.

The construction of the Winooski Main Street Revitalization project is anticipated to take place over three construction seasons starting this spring and continuing through summer 2026. A majority of the construction activities are anticipated to take place Monday through Friday during the daytime hours. There will be some instances of night and weekend work when necessary. Construction will require single-lane closures with alternating one-way traffic predominantly, however, there will be instances of short temporary road closures with detours.
