Traffic cone

These two construction projects are taking place in Colchester this week. 

Culvert repair on I-89 

Culvert repair work at mile marker 97.45 northbound on I-89 will close the left lane from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Monday.

Route 15 lane closures

Work to install a multi-use path along Route 15 will cause lane closures at the intersection with Lime Kiln Road from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. during the week. Motorists should follow signed detour routes. This project will run through September.

Here are a few other traffic delays to be aware of in Chittenden County. 

VT 289 ramp closure in Essex

Culvert replacement work at the intersection of Route 117 and VT 289 will cause two-way traffic, lane shifts, minimal delays and the closure of the westbound on-ramp for VT 289. Motorists must use the VT 289 eastbound on-ramp instead.

The speed limit has been reduced to 30mph within the construction zone, and motorists are urged to slow down while traveling through the area. An October completion date is expected. 

One-lane travel on Route 7 in Winooski

Concrete repair work on Route 7 just after the Winooski River Bridge extending north to the intersection with West Allen Street, and on West Allen between Route 15 and Follett Street will reduce traffic to one lane from 7 p.m.-6 a.m. Sunday through Thursday. This project should be completed by October.

Lane shifts during peak commuting hours in Williston

Waterline work at the intersection of Industrial Ave and VT Route 2 and additional work within the area will cause lane shifts and extended delays during peak commuting hours this week.

Motorists on Route 2 should plan for extra travel time, and traffic control will be present. The project will continue through fall 2023. 

Watch for traffic control on VT 116 in South Burlington 

Signal installation work on VT 116 at the Tilley Drive intersection will cause minor traffic delays from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. during the week. Traffic control will be present, and this project should be completed by November.
