I heard there is a traffic signal planned for the intersection of Guptil Road and Route 100. When will it be installed?
Yes, there is a traffic signal planned for this intersection. A date has not been set for the installation, however, it is likely that the signal will be installed in the 2019 construction season.
What work is being done on Route 100?
The project will remove the existing asphalt pavement to the full width of the existing roadway down to the surface of the existing concrete slab. The slabs will then be removed and a new subbase will be constructed. A number of existing drainage culverts will be repaired or replaced and subsurface drainage will be installed in strategic locations. This will improve the structural integrity of the roadway, increasing its useful life, and reducing maintenance costs.
Will this construction cause delays in my daily commute?
Work will be completed in segments and primarily at night to reduce impacts to the community and travelers. This will maintain two lanes of traffic during the daytime in segments of this heavily traveled corridor. The Contractor will work to limit the amount of time that drivers will be required to drive on the exposed gravel subbase during the concrete slab removal phase.
Will there be any weekend work?
Weekend work is not anticipated for the Route 100 Rehabilitation project, unless weather or other events delay the project.
Will there be bike lanes along Route 100 between Stowe and Waterbury?
Yes, the existing shoulders will be increased to a consistent five foot width, where feasible, to accommodate bicyclists. Marked bicycle lanes will exist between Shaw’s and Guptil Road on both sides of Route 100. Unmarked but expanded shoulders will continue between Guptil Road and Stowe.
What if there is construction noise at night when I am trying to sleep. How long will it last?
The construction is scheduled to take place in segments that may last a week or two at each location.
