I-89 Hartford – Sharon

A resurfacing project continues. Nighttime operations will require lane and speed reductions in the areas of active construction, including ramps.

I-89 Sharon

A bridge rehabilitation project continues. Traffic is reduced to one lane in each direction; crossovers are being utilized. Motorists: be aware of a work zone speed reduction.

I-89 Sharon – Bethel

A resurfacing project resumes on I-89 in both directions. Lane and speed reductions will be in effect in the vicinity of active construction activities.

I-91 Hartford

Motorists can expect continuous lane closures on I-91 northbound and southbound between exits 12 and 11 as crews continue bridge repairs at bridge #44 over US 4, VT 14, the New England Central Railroad, and the White River.

 Cavendish – Weathersfield

A roadway reclaim project is underway on VT 131. Motorists should expect alternating one-way traffic at multiple locations throughout the length of the project. Please use caution as varying surfaces exist within the area. Moderate delays expected. Add extra time to your travel plans.

Single-lane closures are planned on US 4 Eastbound for paving operations. Motorists should use caution as they encounter grooved road surfaces. There will also be additional lane closures in both directions at and around the railroad crossing for signal work (approximately ½ mile from the junction of US 4 and US 7).
