    Heavy traffic delay causes I-91 tie-up

    BRATTLEBORO ó Heavy traffic leaving the state Sunday after a long holiday weekend caused southbound backups of up to 4 miles on Interstate 91.

    The Vermont Agency of Transportation is spending $59.5 million to remove and replace four interstate bridges between exits 2 and 3.

    Some 20,000 daily drivers that used to have two lanes northbound and two lanes southbound now have one each. On Sunday, that caused tie-ups significant enough to cause authorities to send out press releases advising of the slowdown.

    People seeking more information about the construction ó set to continue through the summer of 2016 ó can log onto its website, www.i91brattleborobridge.com.
