Paving/Main Street Sidewalk Construction Update 05/21/20

May 21, 2020

DATE: Week of 5/25/20

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.

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

PLANNED CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITIES: 

  • Work on light pole foundations and conduit will take place all week next week on the south sidewalk. Curb removal and resetting on the north sidewalk will take place all week.
  • Look ahead: When all west-end milling has been completed, the contractor will begin milling from the eastern side of the downtown limits and progress toward Prayer Rock. Next week’s update will include a more exact timeline for when this portion of milling will take place.
  • Thursday: Crews are scheduled to mill the downtown portion of the project. Parking will be restricted for the entire day. Downtown milling should take one full day. Expect delays.
  • Friday: Once the downtown portion has been completed, the contractor will begin milling from the downtown limit (near the Shaw’s), and proceed west toward the high school. Expect delays.
  • Look ahead: When all west-end milling has been completed, the contractor will begin milling from the eastern side of the downtown limits and progress toward Prayer Rock. Next week’s update will include a more exact timeline for when this portion of milling will take place.
  • Construction light towers will continue to remain in use each night in order to provide adequate lighting while street lights are being replaced.

TRAFFIC IMPACTS:

Expect alternating one-way traffic within the downtown area all week next week. Milling operations will cause longer delays, and motorists should add extra time to their travel plans next week.

Memorial Day Holiday: In observance of Memorial Day, crews will be off of the road at approximately noon on Friday, 5/22 and work will resume on Tuesday, 5/26 at 7:00 AM
