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 Main Street Reconstruction project in downtown Waterbury and the Route 100 Rehabilitation project between Waterbury and Stowe. 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.
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
Main Street Reconstruction
Quick FactsStart: April 2019 End: Fall 2021
Work being done: The Main Street project involves "full depth reconstruction" of Main Street, including replacement of all municipal water and sewer infrastructure, and undergrounding of all aerial utilities from Stowe Street to the State Office Complex. 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.
Project area: The project begins inside the railroad trestle by roundabout and continues for approximately 1 mile to Demeritt Place, and includes the lower portion of Stowe Street from Main Street to the dry bridge over the railroad.
Hours of operation: Approximately 7am to 7pm, Monday through Friday. Two lane traffic with some 1 lane alternating traffic. Saturday construction may occur outside of the core of the downtown area.

Next week beginning Monday July 15th, the following areas are scheduled for construction activity: The road cut will continue from Batchelder Street to the end of the project on the right side (odd numbered properties) of South Main Street. Drainage work will continue
