The Route 108 resurfacing project is scheduled to wrap up Aug. 3. Paving was scheduled to finish Wednesday and crews were supposed to begin painting lines on the state highway today, Thursday. All this work is weather-dependent. By the time the project is completed just over seven miles of the road will be resurfaced.

Construction Update: August 3, 2018
Waterbury - Stowe VT Route 100 Rehabilitation Project
Additional projects that may impact travel in the Waterbury/Stowe area include:
Route 108 (Mountain Road) Paving Project
I-89 Montpelier - Waterbury Paving Project
Middlesex US 2 Bridge Replacement Project
PLEASE BE ADVISED: The Waterbury Antique Car Show is scheduled for Friday, August 10 through Sunday, August 12, 2018. Motorists should expect higher than usual traffic volumes and delays. Please plan ahead and leave extra time to reach your destination.
Project: Waterbury - Stowe Route 100 Project
Project Location: VT 100 in the Towns of Waterbury and Stowe.
There are 5.6 miles of newly paved surface starting at the Waterbury Car Wash heading north to the Waterbury-Stowe town line. The new pavement is followed by 0.2 miles of gravel surface into Stowe. After the gravel surface, a milled surface continues north for approximately 0.7 miles ending at Moscow Road. Motorcyclists and bicyclists should use extreme caution on the gravel and milled surfaces. Many of the drives and side roads have gravel aprons.
Beginning at 7 PM Sunday, August 5 through 6 AM Friday, August 10, nighttime slab removal will continue beyond the new pavement towards Moscow Road. Second lift paving operations will also resume next week between McNeil Road and Waterbury Center, weather dependent. Motorists may encounter several areas of one-way alternating traffic along the construction route to facilitate guardrail work and grading/clean-up of shoulders.
Nighttime work is limited to the hours of 7 PM to 6 AM, Sunday night through Friday morning. During these hours, alternating one-way traffic will be implemented. Flaggers will be present to assist motorists through the work zones. During daytime hours, two lanes of travel will remain open unless emergency situations warrant otherwise. This may result in minor traffic delays. No weekend work is anticipated this week. All work is weather permitting.
When you travel this stretch of roadway, you may encounter varying surface conditions in different locations from day to day, and night to night. Drivers should slow down, observe signage, and factor in extra travel time. Proceed with caution and be aware of other vehicles, large trucks, construction crews, and changing road conditions. Leave plenty of space between vehicles to avoid small stones and gravel that may get kicked-up.

Single lane closures NB and SB on I-89 can be expected throughout the week. Please use caution and reduce speed.
