On The Road

November 25, 2019

Welcome to the final On the Road report for the year. While many projects have been completed, a few are still wrapping up as crews prepare for the winter season. Motorists are encouraged to remain focused when driving through work zones; lives depend on it. VTrans wishes all a happy Thanksgiving holiday and safe travels for the months ahead.

Interstates

I-89 Colchester Bridges – Reduced to one lane between Exits 16 and 17 during the day, Monday - Wednesday for site cleanup. Travelers should expect delays.

I-91 Fairlee – Reduced to one lane in the Southbound direction between Exits 16 and 15 as crews wrap up a ledge removal project. 

I-89 Georgia – The Exit 18 Southbound off-ramp is closed for repairs following the Halloween 2019 Storm. A signed detour is in place.

I-91 Rockingham Bridges – Lane and speed reductions continue throughout the work zone. Rolling roadblocks from Exit 7 Southbound will be in place at 8AM and 4PM Monday-Tuesday, and again at 8AM Wednesday, resulting in significant delays. Motorists should plan their travels accordingly.

Around the State

North Hero/Grand Isle – Work continues on the drawbridge replacement project along US-2. A speed reduction is in place, with occasional stops/releases of traffic to allow for construction vehicles to enter the work zone.

Orleans Village – Winter shut-down activities have begun. Flaggers will be on site for daily lane closures, allowing one-way alternating traffic across the new VT-58 bridge.

Sheldon – VT-105 is reduced to alternating one-way traffic at the intersection of VT-78 for a bridge recovery project. Travelers should expect some slight delays.
