Killington Road reconstruction: what to expect this week

By Polly Mikula—Recontruction of Killington Road continues at its intersection with Route 4. Blasting occurs once a day between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. in order to level the entrance.

Drilling and blasting will continue this week at the intersection of Route 4 and Killington Road in Killington. A detour remains in place via West Hill Road.

Monday, May 20, there was a brief break in the blasting, but Tuesday onward will see one blast per day between the hours of 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Motorists can expect a brief traffic stoppage within that time frame daily.

“Trucks will start to enter and exit from the bottom as we begin to haul out the blasted rock. Please be cautious of trucks entering Route 4,” Markowski Excavating, Inc. explained May 17.

Sewer work will continue this week as the transfer to the temporary system was completed last week, and work to remove the old sewer structures will begin this week. “We will also begin moving more dirt out from the East end of the project that remains over the sewer line and along the existing power line. This will be loaded into haul trucks and taken to the dump site. Trucks will stay in the closed shoulder,” Markowski reported.

Work for the following week, beginning May 27, will be a continuation of drilling and blasting rock. Dump trucks will be entering and exiting the site to load out this rock.

Markowski also noted that “Piping materials may begin to arrive along with precast structures. Some sand and gravels may also be delivered depending on the progress of the blasting operations. Again, please stay cautious of any trucks entering and exiting onto Route 4 as deliveries are made.”

A water truck is also actively working to keep dust under control.
