Killington Forward update: Killington Road Phase 1B

The closure of the Killington Access Road from its intersection at Route 4 to Anthony way continues with a detour via West Hill Road.

This week the Killington Sports sign will temporarily be taken down along with a few light poles to make room for a future retaining wall. Excavation up the hill will continue and fill will be taken down to the Old Route 4 dump site.

“As excavation up the hill progresses, the hope is to locate any ledge as well as put a shape to the slopes down to subgrade,” wrote Markowski Excavating, Inc. who won the bid for this project, Phase 1B, in a news release April 19.

“Again, once ledge is discovered, expect a drill rig shortly after.”

Work of the following week (beginning April 29) will be a continuation of excavation of the road and slopes, Markowski wrote. “Waterline and storm drainage materials will be arriving on site. It is anticipated that some of the waterline will begin this week working from the bottom of the hill and progressing up. If ledge is found the previous week, you can expect drilling and blasting to begin this week as well,” the news release continued.
