Travel & Water Service Advisory Nov 12: Night work on Pine St at Birchcliff

Travel Advisory


Burlington -
On Saturday 11/12, DPW Water Resources will be working to repair a leaking valve at Birchcliff Parkway and Pine St. 

What to Expect 

  • Crews will arrive onsite by 6PM to prepare the site and excavate down to the valve. Water is not planned to be shutdown during this phase of work. Southbound traffic will be detoured between Locust and Flynn. Northbound travel will be allowed and will push into the southbound travel lane. Detour signage will be established to take southbound travelers over Locust, onto Shelburne Rd and across Flynn Ave. Birchcliff Parkway will be set up as a local traffic only route during this time. 
  • Beginning at 10PM, water will be shutdown on Pine St between Birchcliff and Lakeside; and on Birchcliff between Cherry and Pine.
  • We anticipate water being restored by 6AM and two way traffic being restored shortly after. 

What Else to Know 

  • Upon resumption of water service, please flush your cold taps until clear as natural discoloration may have been stirred up during the re-opening of the water mains.
  • If you encounter any urgent water issues, please call 802-863-4501 (24/7). For less urgent matters, please email and someone will follow up by the next business day.  

While we do our best to share anticipated traffic and water impacts, unforeseen issues can lead to extended timeframes to repair the valve or possibly more widespread water service issues. We will do our best to communicate these to you in a timely way.
