Champlain Parkway Project

Traffic Alert

One-Way Traffic and Parking Reductions on Pine Street in Burlington, VT

Starting TOMORROW, Thursday, November 16, at 7:00 a.m., and continuing into Friday, November 17, crews will be paving an asphalt overlay (shim) along Pine Street between Lakeside Avenue and Kilburn Street in preparation for the winter project shutdown.

This work will require a single-lane closure with traffic restricted to northbound only along Pine Street between Lakeside Avenue and Kilburn Street on Thursday, November 16, and Friday, November 17 between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. All southbound vehicles along Pine Street will be detoured to Kilburn Street to St. Paul Street and will continue along Shelburne Street to Flynn Avenue and back to Pine Street. In addition, all side streets between Kilburn Street and Lakeside Avenue, including Pine Place, Marble Avenue, Howard Street, and Locust Street, will be restricted to right turn only at their intersection with Pine Street. Please see the detour graphic below. Flaggers will be stationed at each side street to assist motorists. A Uniform Traffic Officer (UTO) will be present at the intersections of Kilburn Street at Pine Street and Lakeside Avenue at Pine Street to assist motorists. Paving operations are weather-dependent.

Roadway paving along Pine Street will require short temporary driveway closures to allow the paver and roller to pass along the driveway opening and for the asphalt to cool. The duration of these short temporary driveway closures ranges from 10-15 minutes, depending on the driveway width and the lift of pavement.

Starting Friday, November 17, at 6:00 a.m. and continuing through 7:00 p.m., there will be no on-street parking permitted along Pine Street between Lakeside Avenue and Kilburn Street to facilitate paving operations. On-street public parking will remain available on the side streets intersecting Pine Street, including Locust Street, Howard Street, Marble Avenue, Pine Place, and Kilburn Street.

On-street parking and two travel lanes will be restored along Pine Street by 7:00 p.m. on Friday, November 17. Crews will return on Monday, November 20, at 7:00 a.m. For the remainder of the construction season, portions of Pine Street between Kilburn Street and Lakeside Avenue will be under single-lane closures with alternating one-way traffic controlled by flaggers and instances of lane shifts to facilitate stormwater work. There is potential for the temporary loss of segments of on-street parking to facilitate lane shifts. Two lanes of traffic will be maintained along Pine Street each day between 6:30 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
