    Champlain Parkway Project

    Lane reductions and road closures

    All major construction activities on this project have been shut down for the winter season. Throughout the winter shutdown, work will take place predominately off the roadway with minor impacts to traffic. From December 1-14, work to create a two-lane road connecting the South End with downtown Burlington will potentially cause short shoulder or single-lane closures on Flynn Avenue and the intersections of the Parkway with Home Avenue, Flynn Avenue, Sears Lane, and Lakeside Avenue to facilitate landscaping and traffic signal installation. There is potential for short shoulder closures along Home Avenue, Flynn Avenue, and Pine Street to facilitate remaining sign installation. The above work will take place between 7am-7pm. This project should be completed by Summer 2027. For more information:
