On July 25, 2022, The Vermont Agency of Transportation in conjunction with Engineers Construction, Inc.(ECI) will begin a culvert replacement project on VT Route 125 in Addison. This project is located approximately 1.3 miles east of the junction of VT Route 125 & 17.
 
Motorists can expect one lane of alternating travel with traffic control present while preliminary work to replace the failing existing culvert is done. From July 27, 2022 to August 2, 2022 a signed detour will be posted for all motorists to follow. After the construction area is paved and line striped, the detour will be taken down and the roadway will open to all motorists.
TRAFFIC IMPACT:  The signed detour will be in place for all motorists wanting to travel west on VT 125 past the closure (to the Champlain Bridge) will continue north on VT 22A then turn left onto VT 17 west. All motorists wanting to travel east on VT 125 past the closure (coming from the bridge) they would continue east on VT 17 and then turn right to head south on VT 22A.
