TRAFFIC DELAYS: Work on all listed operations may require lanes shifts and/or single lane closures in the areas of active construction resulting in one way alternating traffic at times. Flaggers and uniformed traffic officers will be on site directing the flow of traffic. Minor delays may occur. Please plan your travel time accordingly. Motorists are advised that they will still encounter more than one active operation along Route 9 between Bennington and Wilmington.
Please focus on safety when driving through the construction work zone and remember, it is against the law to use a hand held cell phone while driving in Vermont.
