I-89 paving switching to daytime beginning this weekend

MONTPELIER Paving crews beginning this weekend (October 25) will limit traffic flow during the day to one lane along Interstate 89 Northbound from Exit 14 in South Burlington to Exit 16 in Colchester. Motorists should expect delays and plan accordingly. Weather permitting, daytime paving over the weekend will take place from sun up to sun down, and continue into the evening. Daytime paving will continue into the work week as crews push to finish this 17-mile project, but traffic will not be impacted during the morning and afternoon peak commutes. Traffic during the work week will be restricted to one lane between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. only. Paving is weather dependent, but for planning purposes northbound motorists should expect delays between Exits 14 and 16 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day from Monday, October 27 through Friday, October 31. Daytime paving will continue through the following weekend, November 1 and November 2, if necessary. Switching from night to daytime paving is necessary because temperatures at night are now often too low to pave. Crews must now work during the day when the temperature is warmer. Crews will, however, continue to work at night as the weather and temperature permits.
