As of 6:45 am this morning (8/16), US 5 in Coventry re-opened to all traffic, at the project site, a week ahead of schedule. During the closure period, crews scaled back the overhanging ledge and stabilized the remaining ledge along this section of US 5.

The traffic detour is no longer in effect.

For the remainder of the week, crews will remove signs and perform general clean-up work with alternating one-way traffic maintained by flaggers.

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.
