Construction Update SO BURLINGTON I-89 Culverts – week of August 7, 2017
This week the contractor (J. A. McDonald) for a I-89 culvert replacement project advanced plans to restore two Northbound sections of the highway between Exits 12 and 13 in So Burlington that were excavated to install the new culverts. On Friday/Saturday the interstate will be paved and line striping installed (weather permitting).
Early next week northbound traffic will be shifted from the diversions located in the medians to the mainline of the interstate.
For the next few weeks there will be two work shifts on the project. The night crew will work Sunday – Thursday evenings on building the Southbound diversion and removing the Northbound diversion. The left (passing) lane will be closed evenings. During the day (Monday – Friday) the contractor will begin preparations for installing the culverts. Two-lane travel will be maintained during the day.
By the end of next week (August 11) the diversion behind the Dorset Park neighborhood should be fully constructed and night work will cease at his location.
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.
