Construction at Exit 15 in Winooski to begin June 21

first_imgThe Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) on Monday, June 21, will begin work to improve the Exit 15 northbound off ramp along Interstate 89 in Winooski. The construction is expected to last into the fall, and will affect traffic seeking to exit the Interstate as well as traffic along Route 15. Once construction begins, motorists are encouraged to leave additional time to reach their destination.Currently, the northbound Exit 15 off ramp has two dedicated left turn lanes heading west toward downtown Winooski along Route 15, and one dedicated turn lane heading east along Route 15 towards St. Michaels College. At the completion of the project, there will be one left turn lane and two right turn lanes onto Route 15.The project also includes a slight widening of the Interstate exit ramp, as well as installation of new signs and traffic signals at the exit’s intersection with Route 15. A new traffic signal also will be installed at the intersection of Route 15 and Roland Court.When completed, this safety improvement project will allow traffic to exit the Interstate onto Route 15 with greater ease. At times, peak-volume traffic currently backs up onto the Interstate. This project is designed to alleviate this safety concern.A portion of this project will include night work along Route 15.  Night work will include milling existing pavement and laying new pavement between Exit 15 and Roland Court.  Traffic will be reduced to one-way during night work activities.  Specific dates of night work are undetermined at this time.During construction, motorists using Exit 15 northbound and Route 15 near the exit will experience traffic delays.  Traffic control will be present to maintain traffic flow.  Motorists are encouraged to either seek alternate routes or plan for delays when traveling in and around the project area.Source: VTrans. 6.15.2010last_img read more

This demographic will become your base membership in 2042.Millennials were forced to deal with the reality of adulthood during or shortly after the 2008 financial crisis. Both generations grew up with the internet and smartphones. They have diverse opinions on culture, race and politics but common needs when it comes to money and technology.last_img read more
