Construction Update

Champlain Parkway Project

DATE: Friday, July 15, 2022


Starting Friday, July 15, Sears Lane will be closed to thru traffic west of Kaigle’s Service Center. Emergency vehicle access will remain. The pedestrian path between Sears Lane and Harrison Avenue will remain open. Vehicle access to the HULA Lakeside Offsite Parking Lot will now be from Lakeside Avenue only.  


Crews will be on-site Monday, July 18, through Friday, July 22, between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.

Throughout the week, crews will continue work on the installation of the stormwater sand filter located off the roadway just west of the Champlain College Miller Building on Lakeside Avenue and the installation of the additional stormwater drainage infrastructure leading into the sand filter. Work includes excavating the area where the sand filter will be located and installing the stormwater drainage within the project Right of Way along the east side of the parking area between Lakeside Avenue and Sears Lane. Crews will strip top soil along the west side of Briggs Street to prep for construction staging.

Potential for paving operations on the section of Sears Lane between Kaigle’s Service Center and the Hula Lakeside Offsite Lot on Thursday. This work is weather dependent. Additional work in this area will include upgrading the pedestrian travel way along Sears Lane and to the railroad crossing.

Work will continue off the roadway to the west of Pine Street between Sears Lane and Flynn Avenue. Crews will excavate the area for the stormwater detention pond throughout the week. Later in the week, crews will continue ground improvements in the area where future culvert work will take place for Englesby Brook. Ground improvement work will continue over the next several weeks and will include noticeable vibrations.


The Champlain Parkway Project spans a 2.8-mile area from the I-189 intersection with US 7 to Lakeside Avenue, and includes upgrades to Lakeside Avenue, and improvements to the section of Pine Street between Lakeside Avenue and Main Street. 

The initial contract includes the construction of the Champlain Parkway from Home Avenue to Lakeside Avenue, upgrades to Lakeside Avenue, and improvements to the section of Pine Street between Lakeside Avenue and Kilburn Street.
