Paving projects in and around Middlebury will affect traffic on S.R. 13 throughout the summer.
Asphalt paving began this week on S.R. 13 between S.R. 4 and U.S. 20, just south of Middlebury. Flaggers will be directing traffic in a single line with alternating directions during the day, with restrictions lifting each night. Drivers should be aware of temporary lane markings, merging construction traffic and shoulder work through the area.
The Pumpkinvine Trail project is also causing a lane restriction on northbound S.R. 13 from York Drive to Dairy Queen, about 1,000 feet. There are temporary markings that direct traffic in both directions to the west side of S.R. 13.
The installation of curbs and gutters, ADA curb ramps and sections of sidewalk from Middlebury Elementary School to the bridge south of York Street in downtown Middlebury is expected to continue until the beginning of July. After that project is complete, paving work will begin on that portion of S.R. 13.
The entire S.R. 13 asphalt resurfacing project is expected to be complete by mid-September.
