Exit 16 DDI Construction Public Meeting

The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) invites you to attend a project presentation for the Exit 16 Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI) Project. The Exit 16 DDI project includes improvements to the US Routes 2/7 corridor, in the vicinity of I-89 Exit 16, to enhance mobility and safety in Colchester, Vermont. The core of the project is to reconfigure the existing tight diamond interchange to a Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI) at I-89 Exit 16. The initial contract for the Exit 16 DDI project has been awarded and construction is slated to begin in fall 2022. The initial contract includes utility relocation, waterline replacements, telecom duct bank installation, ledge removal, and the construction of retaining walls.

The presentation will include a project overview, construction schedule and sequencing, the anticipated impacts, and information about future blasting activities. Following the presentation, there will be an opportunity to ask questions of the project team, contractor, S.D. Ireland Brothers Corp., and the blasting subcontractor, Capital Rock Drilling & Blasting.
