    Construction Update: May 25, 2018

    Woodstock Village US Route 4 Bridge 51

    Project Location: Village of Woodstock in Windsor County on US Route 4 over Kedron Brook. The bridge is located approximately 0.2 miles east of the intersection of US Route 4 and VT Route 106.

    Please be Advised: 

    • No work is scheduled to occur over the 3-day Memorial Day Weekend.
    • Please use caution while driving over the bridge. Until final paving is completed, drivers should anticipate a 3-inch ramp from the existing US Route 4 roadway down onto the base layer of pavement.

    The contractor is working on the concrete bridge rail now that the sidewalks on both sides of the bridge have been completed. The sidewalk in front of The Collective and Pi Brick Oven Trattoria will be opened today, however, pedestrians are still required to cross the bridge via the five-foot-wide temporary pathway on the north side (post office side). Flaggers will be present to assist pedestrians crossing from the south sidewalk to the north side.

    The remainder of the concrete bridge rail will be completed next week with paving to occur late in the week, or early the following week. All work is scheduled to be complete and the contractor to leave the worksite by June 8th.

    Two-way traffic across the bridge is more common now, but will continue to be reduced as needed to alternating one-way traffic controlled by flaggers.

    Construction activities can be expected weekdays during the hours of 7AM and 6PM. No night or weekend work is anticipated at this time. VTrans will keep you informed of any changes to construction activities related to the Woodstock Village US Route 4 Bridge 51 project throughout the duration of the construction season.

     

    Please focus on safety when driving through the construction work zone and remember, it is illegal in Vermont to use any handheld portable electronic devices while driving. The law carries fines of up to $200 with points assessed if the violation occurs in a work zone.

About The Project(s)

The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) initiated this series of bridge reconstruction projects in 2015. Since 2015, bridge projects have been completed in Andover (2015), Weston (2016), and Woodstock (2016,) and Ludlow (2017). In 2018, VTrans will reconstruct Woodstock Village Bridge. The Killington Bridge is scheduled for construction in 2020.

The bridge replacement projects include:

Construction of each bridge will require a bridge closure period.

All of the bridges will be constructed using Accelerated Bridge Construction methods to expedite construction and reduce impacts to the public.

Please check this website frequently for project updates, and information on construction activities and travel routes during the construction period.
