Chittenden County Traffic Alert - Week of December 2, 2018

This is the final Traffic Alert for the 2018 road construction season unless important updates occur. The Traffic Alert will resume in April 2019. 

Have a safe winter! 

St. Paul Street is CLOSED to all traffic between Main and Maple Streets through mid-January for road repaving, sidewalk reconstruction and work on stormwater infrastructure and utilities. It is open to pedestrians and all businesses remain open. For more information on this reconstruction project, visit¬†.


Road construction on Route 117 from where the state highway begins in Essex to the intersection with Route 2 in Richmond may cause traffic delays due to alternating one lane travel during construction times. On Saturday and Monday through Friday, weather permitting, there will be pavement marking activities between Tiffany Lane and the Essex/Jericho town line. Commuting motorists should seek alternate routes. There may be other minor construction activities in the following weeks if weather permits. For more information and updates, visit¬†

From December 4 through December 14, culvert replacement will close Irish Settlement Road to thru traffic at 293 Irish Settlement Road on the south end, and at 301 Irish Settlement Road on the north end.
