Paving work begins on Interstate 91 between Brattleboro, Rockingham

BRATTLEBORO — Motorists traveling on Interstate 91 between Exit 3 in Brattleboro and Exit 6 in Rockingham will have to put up with delays for the next few months.

Paving work began on the highway last week. The Vermont Agency of Transportation (AOT) says northbound and southbound travelers will have to deal with single-lane traffic and daytime delays through early September.

Northbound, daytime work will take place on the 23 miles of pavement between exits 3 and 6.

Southbound, paving will take place on the 18 miles between Exit 5 in Westminster and Exit 3.

AOT says some work will take place on Saturdays should rain delay the project on weekdays.

For the duration, motorists are urged to obey speed limits and to plan for traffic backups in the work zones.
