I89 CULVERT WORK
Beginning the week of January 23, the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) will remove trees in the median of I-89 about one mile south of exit 13 in So. Burlington.
The trees will be removed as part of a project to replace deteriorated culverts located under the highway. The tree removal, which will take about one week, is necessary to build a two-lane diversion within the I-89 median so that traffic flow can be maintained throughout construction. Temporary roadways in the median will allow the construction crew to excavate and install the new culvert under the existing northbound and southbound travel lanes.
Once the culverts have been installed, the existing I-89 travel lanes will be reopened and use of the temporary roadway will end.
- A. McDonald has been awarded a contract by VTrans to replace three sets of I-89 culverts in 2017, two in So. Burlington between exits 12 and 13, and one in Georgia about one mile south of exit 18.
