Construction Update from Francine Perkins

Montpelier Paving Update —  Two-Week Look Ahead

June 14 — For the remainder of  June, crews will focus on completing the manhole and drainage structure adjustment and crosswalk ramp replacements on State and Main Street as preparation for the final course of paving. As a reminder, in order for final paving of the July 3rd parade route to occur, all manhole and drainage structures need to be adjusted and crosswalk ramps need to be replaced and upgraded.

Final paving of the July 3rd parade route on Main and State Street is estimated to start the week of June 26, weather permitting.

The remainder of the sidewalk replacement work that is not required to be completed before final paving will continue into July.
