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: It is anticipated that concrete repair work will be completed in all of the parking areas at the end of Thursday night's shift (8/12). Crack seal in these areas still remains and will begin after all concrete repair project-wide has been completed. Crews will NOT be working Friday night (8/13). Beginning Sunday, 8/15 work will progress from the intersection of Route 7 and West Canal Street and progress south toward the bridge. Work will be located in this section for the entire week next week. All parking stall areas will be open next week throughout construction.
Traffic Impact: Traffic will be reduced to one lane of travel within the project area Sunday through Thursday night (8/15-8/19) from 7 PM to 6 AM.
