Project Description: The Vermont Agency of Transportation will be rehabilitating the existing concrete roadway in an effort to improve the ride over the surface, and to extend the serviceable life of the concrete before major reconstruction is necessary. Treatment options will be evaluated during the design phase, though it is anticipated that work will include diamond grinding of the surface to improve smoothness and joint filling and repair using either a cementitious or asphaltic material. At this time, it is not anticipated that guardrails or signs will be included as part of the project. View the full project description here.
Location: This project begins on U.S. Highway 7 just after the bridge over the Winooski River and extends northerly along US 7 for 0.138 miles to the intersection with West Allen St., U.S. 7, and Vermont Route 15. This project includes the north and southbound entrances and exits to the circulator, as well as the concrete panels on West Allen St. at the intersection with U.S. 7 to the intersection with Follett Street.
Construction Activities: Crews are scheduled to be on-site Tuesday night, 5/25 to begin grinding the concrete panels in order to level off high places and address low areas. This work will take place Tuesday through Thursday night (5/25 - 5/27), and will likely continue into the week of 6/1. This work will be completed from 7 PM - 6 AM. Holiday: Crews will not be working Friday, 5/28/21 through Monday, 5/31/21 in observance of the Memorial Day holiday. Work will resume Tuesday, 6/1 at 7 PM.
Traffic Impact: Traffic will be reduced to one lane of travel within the project area beginning Tuesday 5/25/21 and will continue through Thursday night, 5/27. This will occur from 7 PM - 6 PM.
