  • On Sunday, 5/31 crews will continue removing and resetting the curb on the North sidewalk. Once the Northside has been completed, crews will move to the South sidewalk. Curb removal and resetting will likely take longer than one week to complete.
  • Crews will continue with work on running electrical conduit for the new light poles on the South sidewalk.
  • Residents can expect the same type of operations and activities that have previously been occurring during daytime hours. Light towers and construction equipment will be in use. Residents should expect construction noise throughout the night.
  • Daytime work next week will consist of milling operations. On Monday, 6/1 milling will begin on the west side of the signalized intersection and continue to progress west toward the project limits near the high school. It will take approximately 2-3 days to complete milling in this area.
  • Once milling on the west end of the project has been completed, crews will move to the east end (by the Bank of Middlebury) and mill towards Prayer Rock. This section will take approximately 2-3 days.

TRAFFIC IMPACTS:

Expect alternating one-way traffic in the area of the active milling operation. Delays should be expected and motorists should add extra time to their travel plans.
