Proposed Work Schedule, Week of 4/23/18, Bennington-Wilmington NH SURF (51) [Route 9 Paving Project]
PROJECT LOCATION: The Bennington-Wilmington paving project begins in the town of Bennington along Route 9 just west of the junction of Route 279 and Route 9 and continues easterly along Route 9 for approximately 16 miles. This paving project will include the towns of Bennington, Woodford, Searsburg and Wilmington, and ends at the Wilmington-Marlboro town line. A minor amount of work will be performed in Wilmington this year.
Work to be performed includes cold planing of the existing pavement, surface preparation, (including crack sealing, pothole repair and patching), a new layer of asphalt paving, installation of rumble strips in designated areas, pavement markings, and other related highway items.
SIGNS: The installation of construction signs has been completed. Those damaged by this past week’s high winds have been repaired/replaced.
SHOULDER WIDENING: Due to the weather this past week, shoulder widening has been rescheduled to begin Monday, 4/23. This work will begin in Woodford.
COLD PLANING: Milling (grinding of the road surface) operations are scheduled to begin the week of 4/23/18 starting at Lind Lane in Searsburg, and progress toward Bennington.
CRACKSEALING: Crack sealing may possibly begin in the latter part of the week of 4/23/18. This operation is weather dependent and may get pushed into the following week in the case of inclement weather throughout the week.
TRAFFIC DELAYS: Shoulder widening, milling and crack sealing operations may require single lane closures resulting in one way alternating traffic at times. Flaggers and uniformed traffic officers will be on site directing the flow of traffic. Minor delays may occur. Please plan your travel time accordingly.
Please focus on safety when driving through the construction work zone and remember, it is against the law to use a hand held cell phone while driving in Vermont.
