The rebuilding of sidewalks and preparation to bury utility lines in Stowe village continued this week.

Much of the work centered on repaving sections of Maple and Main streets. Several spots on Maple Street were dug up Tuesday, slowing traffic considerably when it wasn’t being detoured.

School Street was also closed during the day on Wednesday to prepare for further paving. By the end of the week, work should move to Sunset Street, as new curbs are installed and new sidewalks poured.

Beginning last Monday, workers began tearing up old sidewalks and pouring new ones along Depot Street between Copley Woodlands and the Green Mountain Inn condominiums.

Paving areas that had been dug up to install new curbs was the focus of much of last week’s work. Patch paving was done along Maple Street, Main Street near the intersection with Mountain Road, and further up Mountain Road. Sidewalks were also poured along School Street last week, and all night work for the year was wrapped up.

The entire project to rebuild the sidewalks in the village is scheduled to be completed by the end of October. Work is also continues between bridges one and two on the Stowe Recreation Path, but that portion of the path is back open for use while the project wraps up.

Waterbury work

The ride is getting a little bit smoother on and around Waterbury’s Main Street.

Paving is being completed along the main stem of South Main Street from Park Street to just past Demeritt Place. Once completed, a new traffic pattern will be put in place.

And speaking of smooth, paving is completed at 51 S. Main St., one of several parking options for shoppers and diners looking to patronize Main Street’s many businesses, all of which are open during reconstruction of the street.

Downtown parking is also available in the Elm Street parking lot, Bidwell Lane, Park Row and across from the railroad tracks by the train station off Park Row. 

Sewer and storm-drainage work will continue on South Main between Foundry Street and Park Row. A sprinkler line to the Main Street Fire Station will be installed, which will affect drivers looking to leave the parking lot of Northfield Savings Bank.

Contractors will install granite curbs along South Main between Park Row and Demeritt Place, and then concrete sidewalks and driveway aprons will come next. Water and sewer connections are expected to be completed in this section.
