The $6.6 million project to rebuild the sidewalks in Stowe village and bury power lines beneath them continues to chug along.
Work last week included paving sections of Maple and School streets and Mountain Road that had been torn up.
This week brought more paving and the prep work for it, mainly on Maple Street but also in other small sections throughout the village. Southbound traffic on Maple was scheduled to be detoured Wednesday and Thursday while the paving was done.
New sidewalks were also scheduled to be poured along School Street and around the Bentley Building at Main Street and Mountain Road Thursday and Friday. Sporadic closures of School Street were planned during that work, and Mountain Road will be reduced down to one lane of alternating one-way traffic.
Electrical work and conduit installation for the Main Street utility lines — they’ll go underground next year — were planned on Pond and Park streets this week, and both will close down at times.
Night work between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. continues on Mountain Road, which was closed to through traffic between Main Street and Weeks Hill Road.
