Construction Update

Champlain Parkway Project

DATE: Friday December 15, 2023


Next week, SDK will be performing exploratory excavation along Pine Street between Kilburn Street and Main Street to identify and confirm the locations of existing underground utilities and subsurface conditions in preparation for future work planned as part of the subsequent phase of construction. This work may require single-lane closures with alternating one-way traffic controlled by a flagger and temporary on-street parking restrictions. Two lanes will be maintained along Pine Street during the peak hours of 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Supplemental information regarding the schedule and associated impacts will follow in a future Traffic Alert. 


Winter shutdown for the Champlain Parkway Project continues, with major construction activities on hiatus until the spring. Please note that SDK will maintain an on-site presence throughout the winter shutdown.

Next week, SDK will conduct minor construction activities throughout the project area. East Coast Signals will be on-site to install traffic signals along the Champlain Parkway throughout the winter.


Please be advised that the newly constructed segment of the Champlain Parkway between Home Avenue and Lakeside Avenue has not been completed and is not open for public access. Vehicular traffic along this segment is prohibited. Pedestrian and bicycle access along this portion of the shared-use path is restricted. This area will not be maintained throughout the winter.

All travel surfaces along pre-existing roads, including newly constructed roadways, sidewalks, and shared-use paths on Pine Street, Lakeside Avenue, Home Avenue, Flynn Avenue, and Sears Lane are open and will continue to be maintained throughout the winter. 


Work throughout the winter shutdown will continue to be restricted to between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. 


Throughout the winter shutdown, work will take place predominantly off the roadway with minor impacts to traffic. 


Traffic Signal Installation

East Coast Signals will be on-site throughout the winter shutdown, working to install traffic signals at the intersections of the Champlain Parkway at Home Avenue, Flynn Avenue, Sears Lane, and Lakeside Avenue. This work will take place predominantly off the roadway; however, some installation work may require a short shoulder closure. Next week, East Coast Signals will continue installing electrical conduits for the traffic signals and conduct work in the traffic signal controller cabinets.
