Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) officials are advising motorists that there will be traffic delays in the southbound lane of Interstate 89 between exits 16 and 14 until at least Friday August 5th. VTrans officials said contractors are installing an access road to allow work on a pipe. This has required the closure of the southbound driving lane starting just north of exit 15. Some traffic stoppages have been reported as of this morning. Work on the project is set to begin at 9 am to accommodate morning ‘drive time traffic.’ However, state officials will be monitoring the situation to see if further adjustments will have to be made.
