If you live, work or travel through the construction areas and you think you might be impacted by the road construction, here are a few tips to keep in mind:
- Both the Main Street reconstruction project and the Route 100 repaving project may cause temporary disruption in your regular daily schedules but both will have long term benefits. Keep positive and focused on the end game.
- Downtown Waterbury and our Main Street will be vastly improved by the time we get to mid-2021.
- The rehabilitation work on Route 100 between Waterbury and Stowe that was done in 2018 resulted in a nice smooth surface. It will be finished this year with a final coast of pavement and line striping with bike lanes in some areas. The Guptil Road signal will be completed this spring.
- If your travel is temporarily disrupted or delayed, please be patient and plan for extra travel time.
- Everyone involved in the road construction work is trying their very best to minimize disruptions where possible. Help is available from a number of knowledgeable and qualified individuals who are working on your behalf. Just ask if you have any questions or need information.
- Keep updated on the progress of both projects. There are many ways to get current information. Use the resources that work best for you so you know what to expect each week during construction.
- Remember to support your local businesses who will be open and ready to serve your needs. They will need your business during the road construction projects.
