Work on South Road in Williston will delay traffic for the next few weeks.

The project involves realigning the intersection with East Hill Road and making drainage improvements. The $80,500 project will be largely funded through a grant administered by the Champlain Water District, with the town contributing about $22,000, said Williston Public Works Director Neil Boyden.

The work will also include replacing a culvert, which will eliminate flooding of a nearby manure pit, Boyden said. Water from the area drains into Allen Brook.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane during the work, which Boyden said will take about a month. Motorists can expect minor delays.
South Road is located off Oak Hill Road, a short distance from U.S. 2 in Williston Village.

    almost 3 decades ago when williston started it’s development review process the public works section was pushing for a wider roadway typical for residential streets. The town adopted 30 ft widths vs 24ft. That’s 6/24 (30%) additional impervious area and runoff that needs to treated before flowing into ALLEN BROOK. The town and selectboard have indicated a lack of interest to reach out and help communties like mine that have had expired stormwater permits for more then a decade. Its always been a wait and see, well I see where this headed now.
