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.

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 will be in Winooski saw cutting the roadway in preparation for concrete slab repair and rehabilitation. Beginning Sunday, 7/18 crews will begin the process of repairing joints and cracks in the cement panels. This work involves cutting sections of the panels with a saw, jackhammering out these small sections, cleaning them of debris, and then installing the repair material. This work will be ongoing for several weeks. Traffic will be reduced to one lane of travel within the work zone. Residents and business owners should anticipate increased noise levels during demolition activities. The construction area will have increased lighting overnight as well to ensure the safety of the crew. The contractor will take necessary measures to ensure noise levels remain within approved decibel levels.
Traffic Impact: Traffic will be reduced to one lane of travel Sunday night, 7/18/21 through Thursday night, 7/22/21. This would occur from 7 PM - 6 AM.
