Recreation Path Project

June 19, 2012 – Construction contractor SD Ireland has started construction over the last couple of weeks. They started at the 116/CVU Road intersection and are heading east towards CVU. In this area, the ten foot wide paved path is off the exsiting road, traffic impacts will be sporadic, mainly for trucks. They indicated they will have another crew starting maybe next week from the Commerce/Mechanicsville Road intersection. Construction in much of this area will involve curbing with the five foot sidewalk close to the road. For much of the time traffic will be reduced to one lane. Please seek alternate routes if possible, be prepared for traffic delays and watch out for construction vehicles. Thanks in advance for your patience, call Rocky Martin 482-2281 ext 229 with questions or concerns.

May 2012 – The long awaited Recreation Path Project from the Post Office to the Library is about to become a reality. The project will provide a five foot wide concrete sidewalk from Commerce Street along the western side of Mechanicsville Road to the Pond Road/CVU Road intersection. It will then run along the northern side of CVU Road as a ten foot wide multi-use paved path to Route 116 with a controlled crosswalk to Shelburne Falls Road and ends at the Carpenter Carse Library on Ballard’s Corner Road.

Engineering design work was completed by Vanasse Hangen Brustlin (VHB) of Bedford, N.H. and Ferrisburg, Vt. Construction inspection services will be provided by Staff Sterling Management of Morrisville, Vt.

This version of the plan has been in the works since 2001 and is funded by State and Federal funds through VTrans. The grant pays for 90% of the project; the Town pays for 10%. Currently most of the Town funds for the project are in a reserve account from previous budget years; the balance will be funded through the capital budget over the next five years.

Bids for construction of the project were received April 19, 2012 and the contract was awarded to SD Ireland for $1,636,648. Construction is expected to start June 4, 2012 with all work completed by December 1, 2012.

Mechanicsville Road might be closed to through traffic near the cemetery to allow the contractor to install necessary infrastructure much quicker and overall lessen the impact to traffic. Traffic will be reduced to one lane along much of Mechanicsville Road during construction, please seek alternate routes if possible.

Ongoing construction updates and road closures will be available here. For more information about the project contact Rocky Martin at 482-2096 ext 229 or rmartin@hinesburg.org.
