Woodstock Village US Route 4 Bridge 51

Project Location: US Route 4 Bridge 51 in Woodstock Village over the Kedron Brook.

The Woodstock Village US Route 4 Bridge 51 was re-opened to two-way traffic at 3:05 PM today, five days ahead of schedule.

Immediately following the opening, crews will remove all detour signs and all message boards will be shut down.

In the following, weeks construction will continue with two-way traffic across the bridge, reduced as needed, to alternating one-way traffic controlled by flaggers. Remaining work includes paving, sidewalks and the bridge rail. Until final paving is complete, please use extreme caution when entering the work zone. There is a 3-inch ramp down from the existing US Route 4 roadway pavement onto the base lift of pavement of the bridge. Final paving is scheduled to take place in a few weeks.

Pedestrian access across the bridge will be maintained via a 4-foot temporary pathway on the North side of the bridge (the post office side). Access to the Brick Oven Trattoria will require traversing around the worksite on the north side of the bridge and access the door on the east side of the building. Access to the post office, restaurants and retail shops on the north side will be open. Flaggers will be present to assist pedestrians crossing from the south sidewalk to the north side.

Parking from High Street to Mechanic Street will continue to be unavailable.

Construction activities can be expected weekdays during the hours of 7AM and 6PM. No night or weekend work is anticipated at this time. VTrans will keep you informed of any changes to construction activities related to the Woodstock Village US Route 4 Bridge 51 project throughout the duration of the construction season.

Please focus on safety when driving through the construction work zone and remember, it is illegal in Vermont to use any handheld portable electronic devices while driving. The law carries fines of up to $200 with points assessed if the violation occurs in a work zone.
