● Paving/Main Street Sidewalk Construction Update 10/08/20

October 8, 2020

DATE: Thursday, 10/08/20

PROJECT TYPE: Roadway

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)

  • Crews are currently in the process of finishing the paving of driveway aprons throughout the project. This will continue until all drives are completed, likely mid-week next week.
  • Any paved gutters that need another layer of asphalt will be paved by mid-week next week as well.
  • Please note that paving is weather-dependent. Inclement weather and unfavorable surface conditions can alter the paving schedule.
  • Once paving has been completed, crews will begin to work on backing up the shoulders throughout the project, which entails placing aggregate material along the side of the road to fill in any low shoulder areas.
  • Crews will also begin to finish up placing topsoil, seed and mulch in areas as needed, and will begin working on miscellaneous work items and details that remain to be completed prior to the project coming to a close.

TRAFFIC IMPACTS:

  • Expect one-way alternating traffic in the vicinity of paving and shoulder operations. Minor 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.
