On Sunday April 24, our contractor will begin work to rehabilitate an old water main with break history at the intersection of Home Ave and Queen City Park Road, and extending just east of the railroad tracks. This work is expected to last up to 6 weeks if work goes as planned. Work hours are expected to be 7AM-5PM, with some weekend work as needed. At this time, we expect that one lane of traffic will be open with flaggers during most times. Please pay attention to on-street signage, road crew directions and please travel safely through the work zone. Occasionally, details may change, or unexpected issues may lead to delays.
On April 24th and one additional Sunday later in the project, we will have the full intersection shut down with no thru access. You will need to follow detour signs. Please plan for delays.
On April 24th there will also be a few hours of water outage for users on Queen City Park Road and customers near the intersection of Home Ave and Queen City Park Road, including a stretch of residences on Batchelder. You will be (or have been) notified via door-hanger by later today of a planned outage if this impacts your residence.
This project is one of the final water main rehabilitation projects planned under the 2016 Sustainable Infrastructure Bond, which we paused due to Covid. In addition to water main rehabilitation, Water Resources has 8 miles of sewer and storm pipe rehabilitation planned under the Clean Water Resiliency Plan – the 2018 Plan authorized by voters to begin the long-term reinvestment into our wastewater & stormwater system.
We will be using VT-Alert to support this and many of our construction projects to make residents aware of road closures, widescale service disruptions or major traffic impacts. Sign up today at http://burlingtonvt.gov/btv-alerts.
Thank you for your support during these critical projects.
