Pumpkin Harbor Road in Cambridge will be closed to through traffic through next week for construction.

The road will be closed weekdays between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. to allow workers to replace culverts along the road, starting between North Cambridge and Sweet roads and proceeding back toward Cambridge Village.

The work began Monday, July 29.

The planned detour during the construction could change daily, and drivers should follow the detour signs.

Replacing the culverts is part of a larger project to raise up Pumpkin Harbor Road; that work will continue for several more weeks. The road will be closed down sporadically during the work, and there will be other delays.

Route 15 paving

The resurfacing of several miles of Route 15 in Morristown and Wolcott is chugging along. By Tuesday workers had begun laying down a shim coat of pavement on the Wolcott village end of the project. That initial, thin layer of pavement should stretch all the way to Morristown, near Mountain View Snack Bar, by the end of the week.

After that first round of paving workers will be continuing work to install new guardrails and shore up the shoulders of the road. By late August or early September a final layer of pavement will be laid down along the entire length of the project to wrap things up.

Similar work is beginning in Craftsbury, where the entire length of Route 14 will be similarly repaved this summer and fall. Workers from the same contractor, Pike Industries, were also installing new guardrails there this week. Eventually that road will also be resurfaced.

Morrisville village paving

Work by the Vermont Agency of Transportation to repave the major village roads in Morrisville continued this week. Beginning on Monday, July 29, several crews were working all over the village to install new stone curbs, guardrails and traffic signals and signs. After that work wraps up a final, thicker layer of new pavement will be laid down along all the streets included in the project.

The roads being resurfaced include Upper Main Street and Elmore Street out to Demars Road, Park Street to the village limits, Lower Main Street out to Jersey Heights and Portland, Bridge and Brooklyn Streets out to Professional Drive.

Drivers should continue to expect traffic delays and one lane of alternating, one-way traffic at various points in the village until the project wraps up in September.
