Update: Route 15 in Jeffersonville will be closed today, through 4 p.m., due to material supplies.
Here’s an update on local highway construction projects.
Route 15 closure
A section of Route 15 near Jeffersonville will be closed to all traffic from Friday, Nov. 9 at 7 p.m. until Monday, Nov. 12, at 4 p.m.
About four-tenths of a mile of Route 15 will be closed between the roundabout at Route 108 and the Church Street intersection so workers can install a larger flood-bypass culvert under Route 15 to help alleviate flooding in Jeffersonville from the nearby Brewster River.
The new culvert will be between Union Bank and Jeffersonville Automotive. The work is being done on the weekend to minimize the impact on drivers.
Detour signs will direct drivers to use Church Street and Main Street/Route 108 through the village of Jeffersonville. For more information: Seth Jensen, Lamoille County Planning Commission, 888-4548 or email@example.com.
Routes 15 and 15A
Foul weather has delayed final paving at the rebuilt intersection of Routes 15 and 15A.
The paving had initially been scheduled for Monday, Nov. 5, but it was delayed again by rain; the work is now scheduled to take begin today, Thursday, Nov. 8, if the weather cooperates. If and when the paving is completed, new lines will be painted along both roads, weather permitting.
Battle Row Road
Reconstruction and paving of part of Battle Road Road in Hyde Park was scheduled to begin Monday and continue through the week. Culverts were replaced on the road this summer, but the other work has been postponed by bad weather.
Work on the project will be completed next year.
Rain has delayed paving work on the nearly 9 miles of Route 100 between Waterbury and Stowe.
Workers have been hoping for weeks to lay down a second coat of pavement along three-tenths of a mile of Route 100 near Moscow Road, but a wet, cold October has turned into a cold, wet November.
A second coat of pavement has already been applied along the rest of Route 100 between the two towns. Crews will be back next spring to put a final layer of pavement along the entire stretch of road.
Other work this week, weather permitting, included paving side-road and private driveway aprons, building up the shoulders of the road and doing ditch work.
All work this year should wrap up before Thanksgiving.
