US Route 2 - Richmond to Bolton

The Vermont Agency of Transportation in conjunction with Kubricky Construction Corporation is reconstructing U.S. Route 2 from the Richmond-Williston town line extending easterly for approximately 8.25 miles to approximately halfway between the Notch Road and the Bolton Access Road in Bolton.

During the construction period, motorists should expect traffic flow to be maintained at all times with one-way alternating traffic during construction hours with control present. During one of the culvert replacements, a overnight closure of US-2 will be required. Motorists should also expect to be traveling on a gravel surface during construction.

The posted speed limit will be strictly enforced as the safety of the workers along with the motorists is of the utmost importance. We ask motorists to use extreme caution while traveling through the zone. Please note the fines for speeding within the construction zone will be doubled.

WEEKLY CONSTRUCTION UPDATES

 

PLEASE USE CAUTION AND FOLLOW THE POSTED SPEED LIMITS!

Motorists can expect traffic control to be present during daytime working hours, allowing for one-way alternating travel.
