Construction Update
U.S. Route 7, Charlotte-South Burlington
DATE: Thursday, 8/4/22


Motorists can expect lane closures in the vicinity of active construction operations along Route 7 in Charlotte throughout the week of 8/7 during nighttime work hours. Traffic control personnel will be onsite helping to direct the flow of traffic. Please expect delays.


Milling operations will continue throughout the week of 8/7/22, progressing from south to north. It is anticipated that the contractor will be in Shelburne Village late in the week next week.

There is a possibility that paving of the leveling course (not the final layer) of asphalt will begin late next week beginning on the south end near Charlotte Crossings and progress to the north. Expect crews to be on the roadway at approximately 7:00 p.m.

Work on this contract will be performed at night. Typical nighttime work hours are 7:00 p.m.-6:00 a.m. Sunday through Thursday night. It should be noted, however, that work may be performed at times on Friday nights.

Residents and business owners should anticipate increased noise levels during construction activities. The construction area will also have increased lighting overnight in order to ensure the safety of the crew. The contractor will take necessary measures to ensure noise levels remain within approved decibel levels.
