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 not be working Friday night (8/20). A crew will be onsite tonight (8/19) for a few hours completing some saw cutting of the roadway in the vicinity of the bridge. Saw cutting operations are in preparation for crack sealing. It is anticipated that the installation of techcrete material in repair areas will be completed by the end of the week next week, weather permitting. This work will mainly be performed in the parking stall areas and from West Canal Street to the bridge. Crack sealing operations throughout the project are scheduled to begin next week. Parking stall areas will be restricted during construction next week. Work in the parking stall areas will begin at 9 PM.
Traffic Impact: Traffic will be reduced to one lane of travel within the project area Sunday through Thursday night (8/22 - 8/26) from 7 PM - 6 AM. Work will be performed in parking stall areas throughout the week of 8/22. Work may not begin in these areas prior to 9 PM.
