Cherry Tree Hill Road:

Cherry Tree Hill Road will be closed on Wednesday, August 4, 2021 at the north (Quaker/Vincent Flats intersection) end to allow for the replacement of the culvert just to the south of that intersection. This will be a full-day project with the road closed soon after sunrise and expected to be open for normal traffic flow by nightfall. Local traffic can access all points on Cherry Tree Hill Road from the Towne Hill Road end.

 

County Road:

There is a major project tentatively scheduled for mid-August to mid-September along County Road. Two large culverts will be replaced and the southern 3.83 miles of the East Montpelier portion of the road (all but the section north of Horn of the Moon Road) will be reclaimed and paved. Precise timing is still up in the air as we await the issuance of wetland permits for the two culvert replacements.

Culvert project Site #1 is located on Barnes Brook just to the south of the lower drive for Morse Farm Maple Sugarworks. Site #2 is located on Mallory Brook about 1,000 feet north of the Barnes Road intersection, just south of the Keough driveway at 1648 County Road. There will be a full closure of County Road at the south side of Site #1 and the north side of Site #2 starting in mid-August for up to 16 days. There will be no through traffic at any time during that period. Local traffic, including to Morse Farm, will access the affected stretch by way of Barnes Road off of Center Road. Other local traffic and all through traffic will need to find alternative routes, preferably along VT Rte. 12 or US Rte. 2/VT Rte. 14 for the through traffic. The contractor for both culvert projects is Blue Mountain Trucking & Excavating.

Pike Industries will do the reclaiming work in late August/early September after the in-road portion of the culvert projects is complete, with paving scheduled for mid-September. The road will be open but with a gravel surface during the interim period.

We will provide updates as the schedule firms up. We apologize for any inconvenience this necessary roadwork may cause. If you have any questions regarding the road projects, please contact Town Administrator Bruce Johnson (manager@eastmontpeliervt.org; 223-3313 x 204) or Road Foreman Guthrie Perry (highway@eastmontpeliervt.org; 223-5870).
