Construction Update SO BURLINGTON I-89 Culverts – week of June 19, 2017
Early Friday, June 16, between 2 AM and 4 AM, there will be a rolling roadblock to open two newly constructed lane shifts between Exits 12 and 13 Northbound in So Burlington. The lane shift will allow traffic to flow unimpeded while the highway is excavated for the installation of two culverts. The culverts are located about one mile apart, with the southern culvert situated close to the whale tails area.
Next week excavation of the Northbound lanes of the interstate will start and sections of the concrete culvert will be placed into the ground.
For the safety of workers and motorists, the speed limit has been reduced to 55 m.p.h. for the duration of the project. Vermont State Police will step up enforcement to encourage motorists to slow down so our crew can work in a safe construction zone.
