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.
The traffic signals have been installed at the Guptil Road and Blush Hill intersections with Route 100, but are not yet operational. They will be worked on and calibrated over the next few weeks. It is great to see progress along the Route 100 corridor despite the winter weather conditions. Thanks to the crew for working under difficult circumstances.
Main Street is Changing - Over time, Waterbury's downtown has changed from dirt roads and horse carts, to include modern conveniences such as electricity, utility poles and a traffic signal. Now an aging water and sewer system will be replaced that will serve the downtown for the next 100 years. The reconstruction of Main Street will begin in April and with completion anticipated in June 2021. Overhead utility lines will be buried underground in the village core and lighting will be replaced with period style lampposts with decorative banners, flags and flower baskets. All new sidewalks, trees and landscaping will be
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.
