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 Waterbury's Main Street Reconstruction project. 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.
All - As of this afternoon a decision was made at the state level to delay all state construction projects until further notice. This means that the Main Street Reconstruction project that was scheduled to start on Monday, March 30 will be delayed until the Stay at Home Order, Addendum 6, by the Governor is lifted or otherwise determined to be safe to resume normal activities. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. Stay safe and stay at home. Sincerely, Barb
We are all experiencing some change, stress and uncertainty with the Covid-19 spreading throughout the world. Many discussion have taken place between the town, Vtrans and the contractor on how to proceed with the Main Street Reconstruction project. At this time the construction is scheduled to move forward starting with conduit work on the side streets and behind the fire station on March 30. The contractors are very aware of the tenuous economic situation and are planning to do their best to minimize construction impacts once businesses are allowed to open back up again. Please see the Construction Schedule that
