SHOULDER WIDENING: Crews are scheduled to begin shoulder widening operations the week of 4/16/18. This work will begin at the  the project limits in Bennington.

COLD PLANING: Milling (grinding of the road surface) operations are tentatively scheduled for late April and will begin at the project limits in the town of Bennington.

TRAFFIC DELAYS:  Shoulder widening operations may require single lane closures resulting in one way alternating traffic at times.   Flaggers and uniformed traffic officers will be on site directing the flow of traffic. Minor delays may occur. Please plan your travel time accordingly.

Please focus on safety when driving through the construction work zone and remember, it is against the law to use a hand held cell phone while driving in Vermont.
