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.
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 2020
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 exceptions. Saturday construction may occur outside of the core of the downtown area.
The main part of the Route 100 road construction continues to progress smoothly and is now well into Stowe. The ongoing side work in Waterbury includes the grading of the shoulders, and preparation for the new traffic signal mast arms planned for the Blush Hill/ Stowe Street/ Route 100 intersection and the Guptil Road intersection. Paving will continue this week for the second lift of asphalt from Waterbury Center towards Stowe, and the first asphalt surface in Stowe by the Moscow Road heading north. Currently there are 6.7 miles of newly paved surface or about 71% of the overall distance for this project. Many of
Travelers on Route 100 in Waterbury may have noticed the road work going on at the Blush Hill and Stowe Street intersection this week. This is a horizontal drill under Route 100 to set the conduits for the new traffic signals that are scheduled to go in as part of the Route 100 rehab project. There are two mast arms that will be installed with underground power at this location. The same arrangement is planned for the Guptil Road intersection with foundations and conduit to be installed this season. There have been many calls and emails regarding the status of the
