The City of Burlington is undertaking significant work to upgrade and invest in our aging municipal infrastructure along Maple St and Pine St (on this page, we refer to the section of Pine between Main & Maple). We thank you for your patience during these short term, but significant disruptions. These projects will lead to renewed and revitalized infrastructure that will serve you for a long time. Our goal is to keep you informed.
