SHELBURNE STREET ROUNDABOUT PROJECT
The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) and the Burlington Department of Public Works (Burlington DPW) continue to improve roadway conditions for all users along US Route 7 (Shelburne Street) in Burlington. This joint initiative included 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 included the addition of a designated left turn lane onto Ledge Road and the installation of new pedestrian and bicycle facilities. Furthermore, the project improved signage, street lighting, drainage, stormwater runoff treatment, and relocated and consolidated utility transmissions underground. The project was awarded to S.D. Ireland Brothers of Williston on May 1, 2021. Construction began in 2021 and concluded in July 2023.
