New Streetscape in Waterbury Vermont

Plans are underway for a new streetscape in Waterbury Vermont. Main Street will be transformed into a comfortable, interesting, visually pleasing, and usable space for residents, business owners, and visitors. The revitalization stems from the flooding that occurred when Tropical Storm Irene hit the town hard in 2011. Thanks to help from VTrans and Revitalizing Waterbury, the new streetscape, trees, landscaping, lighting, pedestrian furnishings, and fresh paving will fill Main Street with life, light, color, and texture.

The mile-long streetscape redo is scheduled to start in 2018 and be completed by 2020. It will begin at the railroad overpass adjacent to the new roundabout and extend through town to the bridge over the Winooski River, just past Waterbury Pharmacy. The project involves “full depth reconstruction,” including replacement of all municipal water and sewer infrastructure, and underground routing of all aerial utilities from Stowe Street to the State Office Complex. This is great news, because right now the utility wires in Waterbury are unsightly!

The project also includes new sidewalks, decorative streetlights, landscaping, and streetscape amenities to enhance the appearance of Waterbury village. Construction will be sequenced to maintain traffic flow and reduce disruption to residents and businesses in the village. Here is a rendering of the proposed streetscape makover:
