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.
2019 Main Street Survey Results and Plans for 2020 Construction Season February 11, 2020 Thank you to everyone who took a few minutes to take the survey in January regarding the Main Street construction project in 2019. Especially appreciative of the comments and suggestions for the 2020 construction season. The survey was posted on Front Porch Forum, Waterburyworks.com and to email contacts in the construction zone. Demographics: There were 192 respondents with 32% living within the construction zone. Of those 32% residents, they were equally distributed throughout the length of Main Street in the construction zone. 68% do not live in the construction zone.
If you haven't already done so, please don't forget to complete the Beautify Waterbury survey! This facade improvement program for properties in Waterbury's active construction zone will help transform our downtown, but we need your input on how you'd like to clean, landscape, or otherwise spruce up the front of your building. Please complete this short survey by Monday, February 3.
Main Street Reconstruction
Quick FactsStart: April 2019 End: Fall 2021
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.
Project area: The project begins at the railroad trestle by roundabout and continues for approximately 1 mile to Demeritt Place, and includes the lower portion of Stowe Street from Main Street to the dry bridge over the railroad.
Hours of operation: Approximately 6am to 6pm, Monday through Friday. Two lane traffic with some 1 lane alternating traffic. Saturday construction may occur outside of the core of the downtown area.
