AOT releases road construction report for the week of May 24-28

This weekly report is a list of planned construction activities that will have traffic impacts on state highways throughout Vermont. Please remember to drive safely in all work zones. Lives depend on it.

I-89 Hartford – Sharon

A resurfacing project continues. Nighttime milling operations will require lane reductions on I-89 northbound and southbound from the VT/NH border to just north of Exit 1. A speed reduction to 55 mph will be enforced when lane closures are in effect.

I-89 Sharon

A bridge rehabilitation project continues. Traffic is reduced to one lane in each direction; crossovers are being utilized. Motorists should be aware of a work zone speed reduction.

I-91 Hartford

Motorists can expect continuous lane closures on I-91 northbound and southbound between Exits 12 and 11 in Hartford as crews continue bridge repairs at bridge #44 over U.S. 4, VT 14, the New England Central railroad, and the White River.

Cavendish – Weathersfield

A roadway reclaim project is underway. Motorists should expect alternating one-way traffic at multiple locations throughout the length of the project. Please use caution as paved, milled (scarified), and gravel surfaces exist within the project area. Moderate delays expected. Add extra time to your travel plans.

Chester – Springfield

Multiple bridge replacement projects are underway on VT 11 between VT 103 in Chester and VT 106 in Springfield. Please expect one-way alternating traffic at various points along this route. Anticipate delays.  

Fair Haven – Rutland

Single-lane closures are planned on U.S. 4 in both directions for paving operations, including partial and full exit ramp closures. A crossover traffic pattern is in place at the railroad crossing on divided highway U.S. 4 (approximately ½ mile from the junction of U.S. 4 and U.S. 7), with a reduced speed of 35 mph. Motorists should use caution on U.S. 4 as they encounter grooved pavement on exit ramps and the mainline.


Motorists should expect lane and shoulder closures and alternating one-way traffic along Sykes Mountain Avenue as crews continue work on the roundabouts and sidewalk. Expect noise and minimal delays from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.


Multiple activities for roadway reconstruction along U.S. 7 this week. Motorists should proceed with caution as they navigate new traffic patterns and lane shifts throughout the project. Expect alternating one-way traffic with minor delays. A speed reduction to 35 mph remains in effect. 


The North Street bridge project is underway. A short-term road closure of North Street at the location of the bridge will be in effect beginning Tuesday, May 26. A signed detour will be in place.


On Monday, May 24, district crews will pave a one-mile stretch of VT 100 beginning at its intersection with VT 107 progressing west. Motorists will encounter one-way alternating traffic and should plan on delays for the day.


A paving project continues along VT 100. Motorists should expect alternating one-way traffic during the day.
