Shelburne Street Roundabout

Construction Update

DATE: November 25, 2020 
PROJECT TYPE: Intersection Improvement
LOCATION: Intersection of Shelburne Street, South Willard Street, Ledge Road, and Locust Street in Burlington, VT

Green Mountain Pipeline Services crews will be on Shelburne Street Monday, November 30 and Tuesday, December 1, between the hours of 7AM and 7PM, to continue rehabilitation work on manholes as part of the utility upgrades being made for the Shelburne Street Roundabout Project.

All work is weather dependent. Nearby residents should expect a moderate amount of noise from vehicles with diesel engines on site.


Lane Closures will be utilized as needed on Shelburne Street, reducing traffic to one lane in either direction. Left turns onto Gove Court and Locust Street will be restricted from the northbound lane and left turns onto Ledge Road will be restricted from the southbound lane. Motorists should plan ahead and seek alternate routes to access these streets.

Please note, this work is being performed in preparation for the construction of the Shelburne Street Roundabout Project. Construction is anticipated to begin in the Summer of 2021.

Traffic patterns are changing; motorists should drive cautiously, pay close attention to construction signage and flaggers, and reduce speed through the work zone. Motorists should expect delays and plan extra time for their commute.

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 will improve signage, street lighting, drainage, stormwater runoff treatment, and relocate and consolidate utility transmissions underground. The project is planned to go to bid in January 2021. Construction is expected to begin in 2021 and continue through July 2023.
