Shelburne Street Roundabout

Logo for the Shelburne Street roundabout project in Burlington, VT


DATE: Friday, May 26, 2023


Crews will be off-site at 12:00 p.m., noon, today, Friday, May 26, in observation of the Memorial Day holiday. Crews will return on Tuesday, May 30, at 6:00 a.m.

On Tuesday, May 30, through Friday, June 2, between 6:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m., motorists should expect intermittent traffic impacts including lane and shoulder closures throughout the project area.

There is the potential for nightwork between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. to begin next week to facilitate the installation of final pavement markings. This work may require lane and shoulder closures throughout the project area.

Motorists are reminded to slow down and stay alert when traveling through the work zone.

CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITIES: Crews will be on-site next week to complete project clean-up and miscellaneous punch list items. There is the potential for a crew to begin line striping and other pavement markings during nighttime hours.

The roundabout will remain open and operational to traffic. Additional information on how to navigate a roundabout as a motorist, pedestrian, or cyclist can be found below.


An educational video on how to safely and properly navigate a roundabout can be found on the project website and is linked here. The information from the video is summarized in the graphic below.

The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) and the Burlington Department of Public Works (Burlington DPW) are improving roadway conditions for all users along US Route 7 (Shelburne Street) in Burlington. This joint initiative includes street reconstruction and the construction of a new single-lane roundabout at the intersection of US Route 7 (South Willard Street), US ALT Route 7 (Shelburne Street), Ledge Road and Locust Street. The project also includes the addition of a designated left turn lane onto Ledge Road and the installation of new pedestrian and bicycle facilities. Furthermore, the project is improving signage, street lighting, drainage, stormwater runoff treatment, and relocating and consolidating utility transmissions underground. The project was awarded to S.D. Ireland Brothers of Williston on May 1, 2021. Construction began in 2021 and will continue through July 2023.
