These two construction projects are taking place in Milton this week.
Paving near Lamoille Terrace
Paving work on Cardinal Drive, lower Lamoille Terrace (by the Wastewater Treatment Facility), and at the intersections of Route 7 with Rebecca Lander Drive and Lamoille Terrace will reduce traffic to one lane during this week.
This project should be done by the end of the day on Friday.
River Street Pressure Sustaining Valve
Motorists should be aware of construction work adjacent to Route 7 near River Street Park. Traffic is not expected to be affected, and this project should be completed in August.
Here are a few other traffic delays to be aware of in Chittenden County.
Route 15 delays and detours in Colchester and Essex
Work to install a multi-use path along Route 15 will cause lane closures at the intersection with Lime Kiln Road from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. during the week. Motorists should follow signed detour routes. This project will run through September.
VT 289 ramp closure in Essex
Culvert replacement work at the intersection of Route 117 and VT 289 will cause two-way traffic, lane shifts, minimal delays and the closure of the westbound on-ramp for VT 289. Motorists must use the VT 289 eastbound on-ramp instead.
The speed limit has been reduced to 30mph within the construction zone, and motorists are urged to slow down while traveling through the area. An October completion date is expected.
Lane shifts during peak commuting hours in Williston
Waterline work at the intersection of Industrial Ave and VT Route 2 and additional work within the area will cause lane shifts and extended delays during peak commuting hours this week.
Motorists on Route 2 should plan for extra travel time, and traffic control will be present. The project will continue through fall 2023.
One-lane travel on Route 7 in Winooski
Concrete repair work on Route 7 just after the Winooski River Bridge extending north to the intersection with West Allen Street, and on West Allen between Route 15 and Follett Street will reduce traffic to one lane from 7 p.m.-6 a.m. Sunday through Thursday. This project should be completed by October.
