Saint Paul Street Construction Update. Burlington, VT Parking & Transportation News.

As part of the Great Streets Project, SD Ireland continued work on St Paul Street this week. Below is a summary of what they did last week and what they are planning to do this week.

NOTE: Parking is FREE for the first hour at 194 St Paul Street covered lot ($1/hr thereafter), businesses will remain open throughout construction and pedestrians are always welcome. See map below for more info or check out our interactive map for other parking options.

What Happened Onsite Last Week:

SD Ireland continued excavating for subbase and placing subbase between Maple Street and King Street. Additionally crews continued with excavation for rain gardens, tree grates, soil cells, and pervious pavers on the east and west side of the road between King and Maple. A temporary sidewalk has been created on the east side of Saint Paul Street, which will connect pedestrian traffic.

Next Week Look Ahead:

Subgrading will continue on the road through the King Street intersection. Di Stefano Landscaping will be onsite working on soil cells and rain gardens between King Street and Main Street. SD Ireland will continue working on the east side of the road excavating for tree grates, soil cells, rain gardens and pervious pavers. Additionally, work could begin sidewalk excavation on the west side of the street between King Street and Main Street towards the end of the week.

Possible impacts:

-King Street will turn into a one way street between Church Street and Pine Street. Traffic will be traveling west (Church to Pine). This will begin sometime on Monday please look for signs. The Hilton/TD Bank exit will change to outlet onto Main Street early in the week while SD Ireland is installing subbase in the King Street intersection. The west sidewalk between King Street and Main Street will be closed to through pedestrian traffic. Lastly, the cross walks at the King Street intersection may be closed for part of the week as subbase and storm drain installation is taking place, sidewalk closed, cross here signs will be placed when this occurs.
