Class 1 paving in Vergennes on VT 22A and Ferrisburgh State Highway
Beginning on VT Route 22A in the Town of Vergennes at the town line with Panton at mile marker 0.000 and running northerly along VT Route 22A for a distance of 2.189 miles and stopping at the town line with Ferrisburgh at mile marker 2.189.

Work will generally consist of coarse milling the existing pavement to a 2” depth, then placing a 1/2” lift of Type IVS pavement to level the road surface, followed by a 1-1/2” lift of Type IVS pavement as the final wearing surface. Prior to the placement of the final wearing surface utility valves and drainage structures within the roadway will be adjusted as necessary. Sidewalk ramps and pedestrian crossing infrastructure will be replaced and upgraded to meet current ADA standards. Some minor drainage work will occur near and along the edge of pavement. Signs will also be replaced and upgraded as necessary to meet current specifications in the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). Existing traffic signals within the project limits will receive some minor upgrades. This project is incorporated under a larger composite contract with the Bristol STP PC20(2) Class I paving project.
