Exit 16 Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI)

The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) is improving the roadway along the U.S. Routes 2/7 (U.S. 2/7) corridor, in the vicinity of Interstate 89 (I-89) Exit 16, to enhance mobility and safety in Colchester, Vermont. The project area extends from the Colchester-Winooski town line north for approximately 1 mile to just beyond the intersection of Sunderland Woods Road at U.S. 2/7. The core of the project is to reconfigure the existing tight diamond interchange to a Diverging Diamond Interchange at I-89 Exit 16.

Main Street Revitalization

The Winooski Main Street Revitalization Project encompasses the full reconstruction of approximately 4,000 linear feet of Winooski’s Main Street, from the New England Central Railroad bridge north to the Colchester town line. Winooski’s Main Street corridor is a main thoroughfare and experiences an average daily traffic volume of 15,000 vehicles per day. The project will improve safety, accessibility, and mobility for all modes of transportation through the corridor; replace vital water, sewer, and stormwater infrastructure; and accommodate stable growth along the corridor by eliminating physical barriers (e.g., overhead utilities) and improving the streetscape and landscape environment.

Winooski River Bridge Replacement Project

The 95-year-old Burlington-Winooski Bridge is reaching the end of its service life and no longer meets the needs of the multi-modal community. The project area accommodates over 25,000 vehicles and roughly 300-500 pedestrians and bicyclists per day. This is a drastic difference since the bridge was first constructed to primarily accommodate trolleys. The bridge replacement will provide wider lanes and shoulders, separated shared-use paths on each side of the bridge for bicycle and pedestrian traffic, and will improve connectivity, traffic flow, and safety for all users. Construction is slated to begin in 2027.

US Rte 7 and E. Allen St - Winooski Roadway Project

This project begins on US-7/US-2 (Colchester Ave) at the Winooski/Burlington Town Line and continues northerly along US-7/US-2 (Main Street) to the Winooski/Paving Town Line. The project also begins at the Winooski Circulator on VT-15 (East Allen Street) and extends easterly along VT-15 (East Allen Street) to the Winooski/Colchester Town Line at the Class 1 Town Highway limit.
