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.
Project Location: VT 100 in the Towns of Waterbury and Stowe. Paving: Beginning Sunday, October 14th, the paving crew will continue to pave a second lift of asphalt heading south away from Stowe. The crew will also be paving side road aprons throughout the week. Once paving on Route 100 and all side road aprons have been completed, the crew will begin private drive aprons. All paving operations are weather dependent. Guardrail: Guardrail installation operations will resume on Route 100 from Cliff Street continuing south to River Road. Traffic: Motorists may encounter several areas of one-way alternating traffic along the construction route to
First of all, thank you to all that have contacted me during the Route 100 construction process to report on problem areas or clarify schedules.

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

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.
