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
