What we know about the Winooski Rotary and I-89 new construction

WINOOSKI – Most of the action is hidden — and will remain out of sight to motorists for another month or so.

But some heavy-duty excavation and foundation work is underway in Winooski, a stone’s throw from two new apartment buildings on East Allen Street/Vermont 15.

A tall crane marks the spot: Roughly halfway between Community College of Vermont and the entrance ramp to Interstate 89.

Taking shape: Foundations and walls for underground parking are under construction at East Allen and Manteau streets in Winooski on Oct. 14, 2020.

The project is big. The developer says it will take about a year before the building opens to the public.

Parc Terrace will be impossible for commuters to ignore.

Subscribers can read the full story here to find out how the new structure is rising from a steep slope, what it will look like when it’s finished, what it cost to build — and where folks might find a new cafe/market in the neighborhood.
