Night work on Maple Street is over, town officials say, and not a moment too soon; construction was backed up almost to Shaw’s Supermarket last week as crews from Dale E. Percy Inc. focused mainly on Maple Street and the northern end of Main Street with drainage and utility duct bank installations.
Temporary pavement was laid over the cuts in Maple Street to create a better driving surface.
Night work is almost over for this week, but through tonight, Thursday, workers will focus on the South Main Street area, from the intersection of Mountain Road and Route 100 to just north of Highland Avenue.
Work includes drainage and underground utilities, with crossings at Von Bargen’s driveway and near Highland Avenue.
South Main Street will be closed tonight, with a detour: Moscow Road to Barrows to Luce Hill to Mountain Road and back onto Route 100 in the village.
Local traffic will still be allowed, and businesses and homes will remain accessible. Traffic in the village will not be affected.
Earlier this week, crews worked on box cuts, conduit work and sidewalk prep on the south side of Main Street and South Main Street.
Wednesday, curbing was set along Main Street and South Main Street from Shaw’s General Store to Von Bargen’s on the south side, and from TD Bank to existing crosswalk on South Main Street on the north side.
Today, curbing will be set from the Community Church to Tap 25, and in other areas at the intersection on Main and Maple Streets.
During curb installation today, flaggers and police will be on hand to help traffic flow with one-way alternating traffic at times.
Questions about construction work should be directed to the project’s outreach coordinator, Abby Earle, at 802-253-7350 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Paving work will continue at night, between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m., Sunday through Thursday between Waterbury and Stowe.
Drivers can expect delays and an alternating single lane of traffic. Workers will continue berm removal along the course of the project to improve drainage.

Waterbury Main Street
Water shutoffs are expected during the next few days as workers test and disinfect the water line on Main Street in Waterbury between Park Row and Batchelder Street. During that time, driveway access for even-numbered properties will be limited.
