Main Street Reconstruction
Saturday work may take place on Main Street, but not in the main business core of the downtown.
Construction is planned for this section (Segment 1) in 2020.
There is utility work planned for Stowe Street in 2020. Final streetscaping and landscaping will take place in 2021.
There will be advance notice before switch overs for properties along Main Street and the side streets. Each property will be contacted in advance and considered for its individual needs such as: restaurants may require switch overs before or after open hours, while residential properties may have work completed during the daytime.

There are no "designated signed detours" provided in the project, as VTrans cannot legally assign and/or dictate detours along public or private roadways. Commuters are encouraged to seek alternative routes around construction zones when available. Exceptions for signed detours may take place in the event unexpected complications cannot be avoided.
If you would like weekly updates to know where construction is planned for the week, please sign up for updates on the "News" page of this website. This information is also posted on Front Porch Forum and printed weekly in the Waterbury Record. WDEV provides updates and emergency notifications, such as water shut-offs and boil water notices if and when necessary.
If you live or work in the immediate construction zone and would like emergency notifications when construction will be impacting your residence or business, please provide your contact information to Barb Farr at [email protected] or 802-244-4300 and include your address, email address, cell phone number and landline number if you have one.
The Main Street Reconstruction project is broken down into four (4) segments. They are roughly: Segment 1 - Railroad Bridge to Stowe Street. Segment 2 - Stowe Street to Park Row. Segment 3 - Park Row to Batchelder Street. Segment 4 - Batchelder Street to just beyond Demeritt Place. Construction in 2019 will start in Segments 3 and 4 at the southern end of the village area. Informational updates are broken down by work scheduled in each segment.
