VTrans Re-Opens VT 100 over Crossett Brook in Duxbury

MONTPELIER, Vt.—November 10, 2016---The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) re-opened VT 100 over Crossett Brook in Duxbury late this morning, a day ahead of schedule.  Crews worked all summer to replace the aging culvert which carries Crossett Brook beneath VT 100 in Duxbury.  Earlier this spring, the large aging culvert began showing signs of failure.  Inspections showed significant deterioration of the structure and signs of cracking and sagging in the northbound lane pavement of VT 100.  A temporary two-lane bridge was installed as a temporary measure to carry traffic until the permanent project to replace the culvert was developed.

The failing multi-plate metal pipe arch system, constructed in 1977, was replaced by a 28 foot by 8 foot precast concrete frame with a natural stream bottom, making it more resilient to larger storm events and provide aquatic organism passage.  This new structure is hydraulically adequate and meets state stream equilibrium standards.

Crews will focus on dismantling and removing the temporary bridge thru early December.  Daily lane closures can be expected while crews continue working on the project.  Site restoration and clean-up work will occur in early spring 2017 to complete the project. 

The Duxbury VT Route 100 Bridge replacement project is part of the Waterbury Area Transportation Projects (WATP), a series of transportation and infrastructure improvement projects in the Waterbury area that will meet the immediate and long range needs of the community and the region.  The Roundabout and Stowe Street sidewalk projects were also a part of WATP.  The entire series of projects is scheduled to be completed in 2021.

I-89 Bridges Project – New Northbound Off-Ramp Bridge at Exit 10 Opens to Traffic - October 14, 2016

Contact: Chris Williams

Chris.Williams@vermont.gov

For release: October 14, 2016

I-89 Bridges Project – New Northbound Off-Ramp Bridge at Exit 10 Opens to Traffic

Montpelier, VT - The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) announced today the new northbound I-89 off-ramp bridge, located at Exit 10 in Waterbury, opened to traffic. This major project milestone was accomplished approximately two weeks ahead of schedule.

“We are very pleased to be opening this bridge ahead of schedule,” said Transportation Secretary Chris Cole. “The public has been very patient with the disruptions brought by this phase of the Waterbury Area Projects and I want to thank our contractor for meeting the project deadlines,” continued Cole. “Our improvement efforts in the Waterbury/Stowe area will continue with upgrades to VT 100 and Waterbury’s Main Street in the coming years.”

Daily lane closures can be expected throughout the remainder of the season within the I-89 Exit 10 Bridges project area as work continues. Work this fall includes final paving of the Exit 10 northbound off-ramp between VT 100 and the north end of the bridge, re-installing rumble strips on I-89 on northbound and southbound lanes, and removal of construction signs, traffic control devices and the temporary detour used to exit I-89 during the bridge closure.

The I-89 Bridges Project rehabilitated both the southbound and northbound mainline bridges in 2015. During the 2016 construction season, VTrans performed a full replacement of the Exit 10 northbound off-ramp bridge with a new two lane off-ramp bridge. Construction to replace the bridge required closing the existing bridge to traffic.  Since April, northbound I-89 traffic exiting the interstate in Waterbury has been using a designated detour to access VT 100.   

Work scheduled for 2017 will repair the I-89 northbound and southbound mainline bridge piers, along with restoring the park, installing sidewalk, and paving on Stowe Street.  Construction in 2017 is not expected to impact interstate traffic. Project completion is scheduled for late summer 2017.

Weekly construction updates are posted on the Waterbury Works website at watp.vtransprojects.vermont.gov and emailed to those who register on the website. Regular updates are also provided on 511, Facebook, Twitter, Front Porch Forum and via VTrans’ On the Road program. 

The I-89 Bridges Project is part of the Waterbury Area Transportation Projects (WATP), a series of transportation and infrastructure improvement projects in the Waterbury area that will meet the immediate and long range needs of the community and the region.  The Roundabout and Stowe Street sidewalk projects were also a part of WATP.  Planned work on Route 100 and the Waterbury Main Street Reconstruction projects will be included in the WATP. The entire series of projects is scheduled to be completed in 2021.

VTrans to Replace Culvert on VT 100 in Duxbury - June 8, 2016

VTrans to Replace Culvert on VT 100 in Duxbury

MONTPELIER, Vt.—June 8, 2016---The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) is moving ahead on replacing the culvert which carries Crossett Brook beneath VT 100 in Duxbury.  Earlier this spring, the large aging culvert began showing signs of failure.  Inspections showed significant deterioration of the structure and signs of cracking and sagging in the northbound lane pavement of VT 100.  A temporary two-lane bridge was installed as a temporary measure to carry traffic until the permanent project to replace the culvert was developed.

The failing multi-plate metal pipe arch system, constructed in 1977, will be replaced by a 28 foot by 8 foot precast concrete frame with a natural stream bottom, making it more resilient to larger storm events and provide aquatic organism passage.  Several structural alternatives were considered for this site. Given the site constraints and accelerated projects schedule, a wider, open bottomed concrete frame was selected.  This new structure will be hydraulically adequate and meet state stream equilibrium standards.

Construction is expected to start the week of June 13th with the completion of the replacement scheduled for November 2016.  Crews will return in the spring of 2017 for site restoration and final paving. 

An off-alignment two-lane temporary bridge will be installed by mid-July to carry traffic until VT 100 is restored. Traffic may be interrupted periodically to allow equipment and trucks to access the site.

Weekly construction updates are posted on the Waterbury Works website at http://watp.vtransprojects.vermont.gov and emailed to those who register on the website. Regular updates are also provided on 511, Facebook, Twitter, and via VTrans’ On the Road program. 

The Duxbury VT Route 100 Bridge replacement project is part of the Waterbury Area Transportation Projects (WATP), a series of transportation and infrastructure improvement projects in the Waterbury area that will meet the immediate and long range needs of the community and the region.  The Roundabout and Stowe Street sidewalk projects were also a part of WATP.  The entire series of projects is scheduled to be completed in 2021.

Rolling Road Blocks for Tuesday 6/7 Cancelled - June 6, 2016

Rolling road blocks scheduled for Tuesday, June 7 have been cancelled. Please note that rolling road blocks will occur weekly on I-89 northbound between Exit 9 and Exit 10 so the tubular markers within the lane division can be replaced.

Smart Work Zone in Operation - April 29, 2016

The Smart Work Zone in Waterbury is now in operation with variable message signs posted on I-89, US 2 and VT 100 to alert travelers to construction related traffic conditions and detours.

Messages will be programmed from VTrans Traffic Operations Center. These movable message signs will be relocated as needed based on the location of construction activity and traffic patterns.

The Smart Work Zone provides Advanced Traveler Information during the construction of the new I-89 bridges. A full array of Portable Changeable Message Signs (PCMS), Wavetronics radar traffic sensors, and video cameras broadcast live data to a public website created for this Project. 

https://public.jamlogic.com/zone/vt-waterbury

Google Chrome is recommended to view the live traffic cameras. 
Click here to download the Google Chrome browser.

The general public can view the construction Work Zone traffic conditions at several locations in real time 24/7 and see the messages posted on the PCMS’s. The site’s traffic sensors continuously monitor traffic volumes through the Work Zone and alter PCMS messages regarding potential delays or expected travel times to certain destinations automatically based on pre-determined congestion thresholds, e.g. during peak commuting times. VTrans monitors the Work Zone for traffic congestion and incidents requiring emergency responses, such as disabled vehicles or crashes. When situations such as these do occur and public notification is warranted, VTrans will be able to respond quickly and alert drivers remotely through changes in the PCMS messaging and the website.

Reduced Speed Limits and Traffic Pattern Changes at I-89 Northbound Exit 10 - Waterbury - April 13, 2016

VTrans is moving ahead on construction to replace the northbound Exit 10 off-ramp bridge, the third and final phase of the I-89 Bridges project. Replacement of the off-ramp bridge will require closing the existing bridge which carries exiting northbound traffic to VT 100. Crews are preparing for the northbound off-ramp closure and traffic shift to occur on Friday, April 15th, 2016, weather permitting.

The I-89 northbound traffic pattern will be identical to last year with northbound lanes divided by tubular markers, permanent markings and barrels. Northbound thru traffic will be restricted to left lane use only and traffic exiting I-89 at Exit 10 will be restricted to right lane use only.  During the northbound off-ramp bridge closure, I-89 traffic wanting to exit the interstate will be directed to the temporary off-ramp detour that was constructed last year.  

To promote a safe transition from I-89 onto the temporary ramp, a reduced posted speed limit of 25 mph will be in effect on the temporary ramp. VTrans has included several traffic control measures to warn exiting motorists about the 25 mph speed limit zone.  In addition to posted speed limit signs, advance warning will include installation of two sets of transverse rumble strips, which will span across the right lane in strategic locations. Radar speed feedback signs will also be in place between the two sets of rumble strips.   Additionally, a right turn warning sign will be installed at the turn to the exit ramp which will light up if it detects vehicle speeds higher than 25 mph. 

Southbound I-89 traffic can expect two lanes open at Exit 10, except for occasional times when single temporary lane closures may be necessary.

In 2015, the two mainline I-89 bridges at Exit 10 were rehabilitated and during the 2016 construction season the northbound off-ramp bridge will be reconstructed.

Safe driving tips for the holiday from the Vermont Agency of Transportation. - September 4, 2015

As summer’s last three-day weekend approaches motorists need to remember that driving on holiday weekends adds extra stress to a vacation. Here are some holiday safe driving tips:

1)      Be flexible when making travel plans. Leave early and try to avoid peak travel hours.

 

2)      Avoid pressure driving. Don’t try to do too much in a short time span. Aggressive driving leads to abrupt lane changes, failure to yield right of way and driving too fast for conditions.

3)      Pay attention to driving when fatigued. The increased demands of time tables like check in, check out or other reservations can push drivers over their limit due to reduced sleep schedules. Stay fresh, get plenty of rest and take frequent breaks along the way.

4)      Remember the dangers of distracted driving. Put the phone down. No texting or surfing the web while you drive.

5)      Don’t drink and drive.

This message is brought to you by the Vermont Agency of Transportation.

VT 108 Stowe Bridge Re-Opens a Week Early - May 22, 2015

The VT 108 Stowe Bridge opened to motorists this morning, a week ahead of schedule. During the closure period, crews dismantled and removed the old bridge and constructed the new bridge, which included placing new abutments, installing a new waterline, steel girders and the bridge deck. The roadway approaches were also reconstructed and repaved. 

Construction will continue on the bridge through August.  Remaining work on the project includes constructing the pedestrian access and timber covered walkway, installing new curb, sidewalk and final 2 layers of new pavement on the approaches. Forms under the deck and the old pier will also be removed. While crews work to complete the project, travel will be reduced to one lane over the bridge daily with flaggers assisting in maintaining traffic flow.  

Pedestrian traffic will continue to be re-routed to the Stowe Recreation Path located on Weeks Hill Road to behind the Stowe Community Church.  The new access over the bridge is not completed at this time; crews will be working to provide access by May 29th, 2015.

The temporary signal on VT 100 at West Hill Road will remain in place through completion of the project.  It will be set on flash-mode and become operational when deemed necessary. Motorists can expect traffic delays from daily lane closures on the bridge as crews work to complete the project.
