There will be several active construction operations within the project this week.  Expect traffic delays on VT 12A this week.

  • Crews will be cleaning culverts in Northfield primarily.

Travel will be reduced to one lane with alternating one way traffic around all operations.  Flaggers will be present to assist in maintaining traffic flow.
