Road construction tying up traffic in Burlington

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) A street closure is causing headaches for people driving in and out of Burlington.

St. Paul Street has been under construction for months now while the city revamps the section of roadway between Maple and King streets.

That's pushing thousands of cars onto Pine, Champlain, Winooski and other streets.

WCAX News was told earlier this year the city expects to finish up construction next spring or summer. We called and emailed Burlington Public Works Thursday to try to get an update on that timeline but no one returned our inquiries.
