The Town of Waterbury is working in partnership with Revitalizing Waterbury and VTrans to provide this dedicated website for information on transportation construction plans and timelines for the Route 100 Rehabilitation project between Waterbury and Stowe, and the Main Street Reconstruction project in downtown Waterbury. We are here to help during this transition of making our roadways and community a better, safer, more inviting place to live, work and play.
It's starting! The subcontractor for the Guptil Road traffic signal plans to install signal poles and mast arms on Tuesday 1/15/19. This will be one way alternating traffic when installing the mast arms over the roadway. A traffic officer will be on site during this work to control traffic. Once the poles and mast arms are installed there will be some shifts in traffic to allow the subcontractor to install the signal heads and other necessary equipment. As you know this work will be weather dependent and could change. Also wanted to let everyone know that the Main Street Reconstruction project
Project Location: VT 100 in the Towns of Waterbury and Stowe. Happy New Year! You will see regular work on the traffic signal at Guptil Road taking place which is good news. Beginning Monday, January 7th, crews will be performing new signal work outside of the roadway at the Route 100/Guptil Road intersection. This work is being completed during daytime hours and will continue intermittently throughout the week. TRAFFIC: Minor travel impacts including brief stoppages and/or alternating one-way traffic patterns can be expected as the crew installs the mast arms for the new signals. During these times, a flagger will be on site
Route 100 Rehabilitation
Quick FactsStart: April 2018 End: Fall 2019
Work being done: The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) is rehabilitating Route 100 in the towns of Waterbury and Stowe to provide a sustainable roadway structure, improved travel surface and to reduce the yearly maintenance costs of this important arterial roadway and major tourist route. Existing shoulders will be increased to a consistent five foot width, where feasible, to accommodate bicyclists. A number of existing drainage culverts will be repaired or replaced and subsurface drainage will be installed in strategic locations. A new traffic signal will be installed at Guptil Road and Route 100.
Project area: The project area begins just north of the Waterbury roundabout and continues for approximately 9.5 miles to the Stowe Public Safety Building.
Hours of operation: Approximately 7pm to 6am (night operation) Sunday night through Friday morning with some possible Friday nights

The project also includes new sidewalks, period streetlights, landscaping, streetscape and wayfinding amenities to enhance the appearance of Waterbury village. Construction will be sequenced to maintain traffic flow and reduce disruption to residents and businesses in Waterbury village.
