July 23, 2020

DATE: Thursday, 7/23/20


LOCATION: Beginning on VT Route 116 in Bristol near the intersection of Airport Road at mile marker 6.006 then running north for 1.230 miles and ending at Class I/State Highway limit at mile marker 7.263 in Bristol.

PLANNED CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITIES: (Please be advised that the construction schedule is subject to change)

  • Friday, 7/24: Crews will be pouring the concrete step in front of Kimball’s early tomorrow morning, prior to business hours. The ramp at this location will be replaced and remain for a few more days while the concrete step cures.
  • The step in front of Wokky’s will be replaced and made wider. This will occur tomorrow prior to business hours. A ramp will be put into place and remain for a few days while the new step cures.
  • Two concrete steps will be added (one at each entrance) at the James Dumont Attorney office space. Access will be maintained at this location.
  • The sidewalk ramps at the Bank of Middlebury will be poured tomorrow and crews will be pouring concrete for the remaining sidewalk ramps at various locations throughout the project as well.
  • Week of 7/30: Crews will be working on adjusting storm drain and water valve structure elevations. One-way alternating traffic may be required in these areas depending on the location of the structure(s).
  • Permanent traffic sign installation is scheduled to begin on Thursday next week. This operation should have a minimal impact on the flow of traffic.
  • Look Ahead: Stamped concrete work is currently being scheduled and may begin late in the week next week. It is more likely that this work will occur during the week of 8/3. Stamped concrete will be completed as night work.
  • Installation of four bollards (2 at each hydrant location–by Vermont Tree Goods and Cubber’s) is currently being scheduled. This work may occur as early as next week.


  • The sidewalk panels located at Kimball’s store have been poured.
  • The rapid-flash pedestrian beacon foundations at the crossing by the Bank of Middlebury have been completed.


  • Expect one-way alternating traffic in the vicinity of crews adjusting structures and installing permanent signage. Brief delays should be expected.

As part of Governor Scott’s “Work Smart, Stay Safe” order, all construction crews are currently subject to certain safety restrictions.
