    Waterbury - Stowe VT Route 100 Rehabilitation Project

    Construction Update: October 18, 2018

    Project Location:  VT 100 in the Towns of Waterbury and Stowe.

    Due to the inclement weather anticipated next week, the crew will be paving on Route 100 on Friday, October 19 beginning at 7 PM and will be off the road by 6 AM Saturday, October 20.

    There is approximately 1 mile of Route 100 between Moscow Road and just south of Gold Brook Road remaining to receive a second lift pavement. Many of the side road aprons have been paved heading south from Stowe and the remainder are anticipated to be completed throughout next week.

    Private driveway aprons will be paved before the construction team moves out for winter. All work for the 2018 construction season is expected to be completed in advance of the Thanksgiving Holiday. The crew will return in the Spring to complete the final lift of pavement from just north of the roundabout in Waterbury to the Safety Complex in Stowe.

    Paving: Friday, October 19, the paving crew will continue to pave a second lift of asphalt to complete paving operations on the Route 100 mainline between Moscow Road and just south of Gold Brook Road. Paving operation will then continue Sunday, October 21 on side road aprons. Once paving on Route 100 and all side road aprons have been completed, the crew will begin private drive aprons. All paving operations are weather dependent.

    Guardrail/Shoulders: Guardrail installation operations will resume Sunday night along Route 100 in Stowe, continuing south towards Waterbury. Crews will also continue clean-up of the road shoulders, backup new pavement, and complete stone ditching and slope work throughout the week.

    Traffic: Motorists may encounter several areas of one-way alternating traffic along the construction route to facilitate road, guardrail, shoulder, drive and side road apron work.

    Flaggers will be present to assist motorists through the work zones. This may result in minor traffic delays. All work is weather permitting.

Waterbury Works: Waterbury Area Transportation Projects

OVERVIEW

The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) initiated the Waterbury Area Transportation Projects (WATP) in 2014 to improve transportation and infrastructure in the Waterbury and Stowe area and meet the immediate and long range needs of the community and the region.

Several projects have been completed and others are in final design or construction. When the entire program is completed, the investment will not only strengthen the region’s transportation system but will also contribute to the economic viability, livability and sustainability of local communities.

The individual projects address a wide range of local and regional needs. The I-89 Bridges Project, a multi-year project completed in 2017, rehabilitated aging interstate structures that provide a critical link to Montpelier and Burlington. The Roundabout Project, located at Exit 10 on I-89 at the juncture of Route 2 and VT 100, completed in 2015, improves traffic flow for 12,000+ vehicles per day entering Waterbury and provides a gateway to the community. Related projects, including the Bolton - Waterbury (US 2 Reclaim), Waitsfield - Moretown - Duxbury (VT 100 Resurfacing), and Richmond - Bolton US 2 will extend roadway improvements to Stowe and other communities within the region by rehabilitating and repaving the roadway along VT 100 and Route 2.

In 2018, construction begins on the Waterbury - Stowe (VT 100 Rehabilitation Project to improve the roadway surface on this major arterial roadway. Construction will begin at the project limits in Waterbury just north of the roundabout and proceed to the north, ending south of Stowe Lower Village. In 2019, the final segment of the project will be constructed from Stowe Lower Village to the project end near the Stowe Public Safety Complex.

The long-awaited reconstruction of Main Street, scheduled to start construction in 2019, will rebuild a 1-mile section of Route 2 integrating pedestrian and streetscape improvements and facilitating access.

VTrans is leading the WATP as part of the Agency’s ongoing effort to maintain and improve the state’s transportation infrastructure. VTrans is partnering with the Town of Waterbury and the Town of Stowe on the Waterbury - Stowe VT 100 Project and Main Street Project.

VTrans comprehensive communications and public outreach program keeps the community informed and minimizes disruptions. This website provides current project information and weekly construction updates. Additional sources of project information include:
