LINCOLN HILL ROAD PROJECT
Shrewsbury STP 1443(44) [Lincoln Hill Rd.]
Opens On Schedule
The Lincoln Hill Rd. bridge/culvert project has reopened at approximately 10:00 pm on Sunday, August 2, 2015, approximately 3 1/2hours ahead of schedule.
The bridge/culvert was closed on Monday, July 6th to replace the entire structure. The road closure was scheduled to last for 28 consecutive calendar days.
During the closure, VTrans replaced the bridge/culvert structure which was in poor condition and did not meet current design standards, with a new bridge/culvert using Accelerated Bridge Construction methods which uses prefabricated elements and road closures to reduce onsite construction time.
Using Accelerated Bridge Construction methods, VTrans was able to deliver a bridge/culvert in a month instead of inconveniencing motorists for an entire construction season. Accelerated Bridge Construction also minimizes project impacts and lowers design costs.
Work will continue to complete the project, and the road surface is currently loose granular material. Drivers are advised to use caution when driving through the work zone.
