TRAFFIC IMPACT: Motorists on Vermont Route 142 should be aware that construction activities are ongoing along VT 142 approximately 1000′ south of the intersection with New Hampshire Route 119. Construction vehicles will continue entering and exiting the construction site and minor flagging and delays may be encountered in this area.
Traffic Control Plans for June 2023 include a scheduled closure of VT 142 for 90 days. The location of the closure will be north of the intersection of Royal Road and continue to 28 Vernon Street with access to both being maintained for the duration.
The Vermont bridge abutment continues to progress with backfill and embankment operations scheduled through the end of this month. Construction on the mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) wall on the north side of the abutment will then begin.
Pile driving operations are complete at Pier 3, but will continue at Pier locations 2 and 1 – these are the piers closest to Vermont. Intermittent pounding of diesel pile hammers is anticipated through the Summer of 2023 with Saturday work anticipated. The contractor is allowed to work Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. unrestricted.
