The Town of Killington has been working with the Agency of Transportation (AOT) on short-term and long-term solutions for the Route 4 reconstruction. AOT has begun working around the clock, 7 days per week on construction. To accommodate their work schedule, they have asked the Town to limit traffic as much as possible during this time. Information is unfolding hourly as a plan is being developed and updates will continue to be made public as they become available.
To support these goals, a police escort will be provided tomorrow, Sept. 3, for people who need to enter and exit Killington, from Killington to Bridgewater. The road from Bridgewater to I-91 is clear and open.
A line-up will begin at 6 pm at the intersection of River Rd. and Rt. 4 to exit Killington. A line-up will begin at 6:45 pm at the Long Trail Brewery in Bridgewater to enter Killington.
This information is subject to change. As soon as additional information is available, it will be posted on and distributed through the Town's e-mail newsletter. Please check back daily for an updated schedule.
