NOTE:  Road work can be weather dependent, and dates of work may shift accordingly.


Sidewalk work on Colchester Avenue from South Prospect Street to East Avenue will close shoulders on the south side to cyclists. The west- and east-bound bike lanes will be closed intermittently to allow construction vehicle access. Two-way traffic will be maintained most of the time. This work will continue through September.

Some streets have been designated as local traffic only to encourage people to get outside. See that map here: and please follow all on-street signage.


On Monday through Wednesday, motorists should be aware of a sidewalk project on VT Route 2A between Mill Pond Road and the Colchester Fire Department Building. Most work will be off the travel portion of the roadway.

Drivers are asked to please use caution. The CCRPC would like to remind all motorists in highway work zones to:

  • Reduce speed;
  • Obey all workers holding signs;
  • Watch out for people and machines; and
  • Give ‘em a brake… when you encounter a work zone.
