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.
For the project area of Route 100 between Waterbury and Stowe. The Guptil Road intersection now has a fully operation traffic signal that allows for a smooth traffic flow in that high traffic area. Thank you to all who waited for a long time to see this happen. Travelers should be watchful going through the intersection as some people are still getting used to it. TRAFFIC IMPACT: Two-way traffic will be maintained during daytime hours. Minor travel impacts are possible and include potential stoppages and/or intermittent periods of alternating one-way traffic patterns. During evening hours, alternating one-way traffic and lane closures are expected
This was a busy week with water outages that impacted South Main Street, Duxbury and Moretown requiring notifications to boil water and then additional notifications that the boil water order was lifted in some areas but not in others. Notifications went out in several ways to the owners, renters and businesses in the affect areas. If you didn't receive a notice and you did not lose water, then the boil water order doesn't apply to you. Looking forward to the week of May 20th there will be continued construction in multiple areas. Sewer work between Park Street and Warren Court will wrap
