I-89 getting a facelift

April 24th, 2014

Observer staff report
Vermont Agency of Transportation crews began nighttime resurfacing work on the northbound lane of Interstate 89 on Monday.
Crews are set to repave the highway beginning just north of exit 11 in Richmond, through Williston, South Burlington and Exit 16 in Colchester, nearly 13 miles in all.
Work will be done between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. to avoid holding up traffic when more people are on the road.
Erik Filkorn of VTrans said crews expect to finish the northbound lanes and begin on the southbound section by May. Work will continue through the summer.
Travel will be reduced to one lane in various areas during the project and the speed limit will be reduced throughout the construction zone. Drivers may experience some delays, and should plan accordingly.
