Hartford: Motorists can expect minor traffic disruptions along VT-14 as crews receive large deliveries of steel for an ongoing bridge replacement project.

Killington: A bridge replacement project is underway on US-4 east of the Skyeship Gondola. Motorists will continue to use the temporary bridge located just upstream of the existing bridge. Motorists can expect single-lane closures with alternating one-way traffic controlled by flaggers. Drivers should be aware that sections of the roadway within the work zone will be gravel surfaces.

Drivers, especially motorcyclists, are encouraged to use caution and slow down while traveling through the work area.
