Current Road Construction Projects in Scenic Vt.

On The Road  | July 16, 2017

Proms and graduation mark the end of the school year. I urge all parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles to take time to connect with these teens and not only show some love, but show concern. There will be lots of parties, group functions and just plain driving around. Remind them that automobile crashes are the number one cause of death for teenagers. Drive sober, limit the number of people in a vehicle, use seatbelts and “Groom Before You Zoom!” Have your best look before you take off so you do not have to check on the road.




I-89 Colchester to Swanton has a repaving project with night work from 6 p.m. to 6 am. There will also be daytime work throughout the week, weather permitting. There will be pavement marking up to Exit 19. Bridge joint work in both northbound and southbound lanes from Milton to Swanton. In Georgia, culvert replacement projects will continue. There will be no lane closures during morning and afternoon commuting hours. Culvert work between Exits 12 and 13 on the South Burlington stretch of I-89 this week. Expect day and night work with median projects causing reduced speeds and lane restrictions. In Middlesex, drivers should expect daily northbound and southbound lane closures and slower speed limits near the US 2 overpass.

I-91 Northbound in Lyndon the right lane and shoulder will be closed for ledge removal. Expect lane shifts. In Rockingham Exit 6 northbound on ramp will close until July 21.
