Where is the state road construction this week? 

The Agency of Transportation has reported its planned construction activities that will impact traffic on state highways and interstates throughout Vermont. Local roadways affected are as follows:  

I-91 Springfield-Hartland: Multiple single-lane closures will be in place along I-91 southbound from north of Exit 9 to just south of Exit 7 while a paving project continues. A speed limit reduction to 55 mph is in effect through the work zone. Motorists should watch for shifting traffic patterns, and motorcyclists should continue to use caution on grooved and uneven surfaces.     

 Hartford-U.S. Route 5: Sunday through Thursday during nighttime hours, motorists should expect minor delays and alternating one-way lane traffic shifts on Route 5 between Bugbee Street and Highland Ave, from Bugbee Street to Route 14, and from the VA Cutoff Road to the Sykes Mountain Ave roundabout. Monday through Friday during daytime hours, motorists should expect significant delays and alternating one-way lane closures on Route 5 from Leslie Drive near the Maxfield Sports Complex to the Hartland town line. Flaggers and uniformed traffic officers will be present to assist motorists through the work zone. 

Ludlow: Pleasant Street at the junction of Pleasant Street and Mill Street remains closed to all vehicle traffic to facilitate project construction. A detour is in place that guides vehicle traffic from Pleasant Street along Elm Street, Main Street, and Pleasant Street Extension.   

Pittsford: Motorists are traveling over the temporary bridge. Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. traffic control will be present to allow for intermittent one-way alternating travel on Route 7. 

Rutland: A Class I highway resurfacing project is in progress. From Sunday at 7 p.m. to Friday at 7 a.m., motorists can expect lane closures with alternating one-way traffic controlled by flaggers and uniformed traffic officers on Route 4 between Gleason Road and Route 7, and on Route 7 between Cold River Road and Lincoln Avenue between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. Motorists traveling on these routes should expect grooved and uneven roadway surfaces with raised manhole structures. 

Woodstock: A culvert replacement project is ongoing on Route 4 near Valley View Road. A temporary bypass road is in place. Motorists should expect flaggers stopping traffic as required to allow trucks to enter and exit the job site.
