AOT releases weekly road construction report


Vermont Agency of Transportation’s weekly report lists planned construction activities that will have traffic impacts on state highways and interstates throughout Vermont for the week of Sept. 4-8. Most crews will be off for Labor Day on Monday and resume work on Tuesday, Sept. 5.

Here are the local roadways affected:

I-89 White River Junction – Partners at NHDOT are working on a multi-year bridge replacement project on I-89 over the Connecticut River. Motorists should expect daily lane closures and speed reductions over the northbound and southbound bridges.

Chester – A culvert replacement project is underway along VT 10 just east of its intersection with VT 103. Travelers should expect short delays with one-way alternating traffic controlled by temporary signals.

Hartland – The Hartland 3 Corners intersection reconfiguration project continues with the contractor preparing and pouring concrete sidewalks and paving the parking lot off Quechee Road, with work resuming on Tuesday, Sept. 5, and continuing through the rest of the week. Motorists should expect flagged traffic at the U.S. 5/VT 12/Quechee Road intersection.

Killington – A bridge replacement project is underway on U.S. 4 east of the Skyeship Gondola. The U.S. 4 Bridge #33 over the Ottauquechee River remains closed, with traffic continuing to use the temporary bridge located just upstream of the existing bridge. Mission Farm Road remains closed at its intersection with U.S. 4. Motorists should expect potential intermittent short stoppages along U.S. 4 near the existing bridge. 

Killington – A culvert replacement project is underway on U.S. 4 at Spring Hill Road. The phase one detour is open, with traffic shifting to the south side of U.S. 4. Starting mid-week, the Phase 2 detour will open and traffic will be shifted to the north side of U.S. 4. Motorists should expect intermittent short stoppages along U.S. 4 during this time. The detours are narrow with added curvature to their alignment. 

Ludlow – A bridge replacement project is underway along VT 100, 3.4 miles north of the intersection with VT 103. Motorists can expect single-lane closures facilitated by flaggers during working hours Tuesday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Motorists should travel with caution. 

Plymouth – A bridge deck replacement project is underway along VT 100 1.5 miles south of the intersection of VT 100 and VT 100A. A speed limit reduction to 40 mph is in effect with an alternating one-way traffic pattern regulated by temporary signals. Motorists can expect minor delays through the work zone.

Poultney – A bridge replacement project is ongoing at the intersection of Thrall Road and River Street where the yield to alternating traffic pattern remains in place. Construction traffic to both abutments continues. 

Quechee – A major rehabilitation of the Quechee Gorge Bridge continues. Motorists can expect lane closures with flaggers from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The hiking trail under the bridge is fully closed until November 2025. Hikers will need to exit the trail at the bridge underpass and use the visitor center trail to bypass the construction zone.
