Hinesburg Road reopens in South Burlington

SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) An update to a traffic alert in South Burlington we first told you about in mid-July.

Hinesburg Road near Kennedy Drive is now partially open to traffic. Crews have been doing culvert work. The project is not done but work is far enough along to open it to drivers. And that's good news for area residents that had to figure out a route around the roadwork.

"We still have an active work zone and we will be working in the area every day during the week, but that work will be limited to the sides of the road. But we will have equipment still in the roadway with one lane closed during the day at times," said Chris Achilles, the VTrans site engineer.

So there will still be delays with only one lane open. The road will fully open sometime in mid-October.
