Killington Forward update: base of Killington Road prepped this week, closed starting Monday

“We plan to begin work on the Killington Access Road Project starting April 8,” wrote Tom Markowski of Markowski Excavating, Inc., in a project update April 5. The project will ultimately reduce the grade of the hill on Killington Road from where it intersects with Route 4 to Anthony Way. “Although the first day will be limited to moving equipment and mobilizing some materials. Only half a day of work is expected due to the solar eclipse event Tuesday… Wednesday through Friday will be more shoulder closed work,” he explained.

Killington Road will remain open this week, while crews prep.

“We will be removing snow and adjusting the elevation of an existing catch basin in the ditch line,” Markowski continued. “Also during this time, Lafayette Highway Systems will be working along Route 100, Route 4, West Hill Road and Killington Road installing construction signage in prep for the detour plan.”

“By midday Monday, April 15, the Killington access road will be closed from the intersection with Route 4 up 1,300 feet. At this point, vehicles that wish to go between the access road and Route 4 will have to use West Hill Road.”

The detour is expected to last until July 8.

“More equipment will arrive this week and trucks will be entering and exiting the job site at the Route 4 intersection. Please be cautious of trucks pulling out headed both East and West on Route 4. The turning lanes on Route 4 will be barreled off and inaccessible,” Markowski concluded.
