Wildwood West Development to Ferry Road

Crews will be removing topsoil along US 7 to prepare this section for reconstruction. Traffic will be reduced to alternating one-way traffic with flaggers present to direct traffic.

East Thompsons Point Road to Wildwood West Development – 

Base course paving of the newly reconstructed section of US 7 between the Charlotte Berry Farm and Wildwood West Development is planned to start mid-week, weather permitting. Crews will also be placing topsoil on the slopes and performing clean-up activities to prepare the road for traffic.

US 7 traffic is currently using the offline two-way detour through this section of the project. Traffic is tentatively scheduled to be shifted from the two-way detour to this newly reconstructed section of US 7 following the holiday weekend.

Traffic: Two-way traffic will be maintained as much as possible.  Alternating one-way traffic will be utilized while crews prepare and transition the traffic onto the traffic detours.  Flaggers will be present to maintain traffic flow.

It is illegal in VT 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.
