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.
For more information on the Main Street Reconstruction project, please attend the Public Information Meeting on March 21, 2019, at 6:00 pm in the Steele Community Room of the Municipal Building. VTrans, Stantec (the project engineers), and J.A. McDonald (the contractors) will provide an overview of the project and respond to questions.
Spring is coming, which means construction is too! Attend the Public Information Meeting on Thursday, March 21 at 6:00 pm in the Steele Community Room to learn more about the project and see graphics, including segment maps, construction schedules, and digital renderings of the key improvements. Starting during the week of March 25, some of the trees along Main Street will be removed in advance on the construction, but trees will be replaced at the end of construction. Property owners in Segments 2-4 have until Friday, March 15 to request a baseline vibration assessment.
Work is beginning! Utility work is happening on South Main Street as the utility lines are switched over from the old to the new poles. Construction is planned to begin in mid-April at Park Street and progress south to Demeritt Place. More information and graphics about the work will be available at Town Meeting on Tuesday, March 5 at 9:00 am and the public information meeting on Thursday, March 21 at 6:00 pm in the Steele Community Room. Work is continuing on the Guptil Road signals and they will become operational this spring.
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.
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
