New Sidewalk

An orange traffic cone marks a section of new sidewalk along Route 7 in Milton.

Several construction projects in Milton  could lightly affect traffic for the next month.

Cherry Street Sidewalk

Sidewalk construction at the intersection of Cherry and Railroad streets will limit traffic to one-way and may cause possible delays through July 9, according to the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission. 

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 by July 9.

Here are few other traffic delays to be aware of in Chittenden County this week.

Colchester-Essex Multi-use Path

Work to install a multi-use path along Route 15 will cause lane closures in each direction from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. starting June 7 between Lime Kiln Road and the UVM Fanny Allen Campus area and between Ethan Allen Avenue and Susie Wilson Road.

Essex Culvert Replacement

Culvert replacement work will minimally impact traffic at the intersection of Route 117 and VT 289 during the week through October. The speed limit has been reduced to 30 mph within the construction zone, and motorists are urged to slow down while traveling through the area.

Jericho Paving

Paving will cause occasional one-lane traffic on Governor Peck Road between 102 Governor Peck Road and the intersection of Browns Trace Road through June 25. Motorists should seek an alternate route.

I-189 and Burlington Ramp Work

Night-time road construction on the I-189 westbound ramps at the intersection with Route 7 and on Route 7 near Buffalo Wild Wings and the Gateway Shopping Center will cause alternating one-way travel through the fall. Traffic control will be present, and work hours are between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. Sunday through Thursday this week.
