Update: Vermont State Police // Serious MV Crash // Interstate Closure



posted at 4:20 pm Tue Jun 25th, 2013 by (WherezIt_Staff)

In working in conjunction with VTrans, as well as, other onsite state agencies, the Vermont State Police would like to remind commuters to seek alternate travel routes around the I-89 southbound Exit #15 (Winooski River Bridge) area.

Currently, VTrans officials are in the final stages of mitigating any potential or actual hazmat issues, as well as, normalizing the bridge's guard rail system resulting from last-night's collision. This work continues to result in the blockage portions of the usable roadway within this stretch of interstate.

An effort has been made to establish a second lane of travel which will help alleviate further southbound traffic delays, however, commuters are advised to expect heavy traffic and time delays over the next several hours, while crews work to finish repairs to the damaged sections of the bridge.

Although the crash investigation is still ongoing at this point, the State Police advise that the operator of the Commercial motor-vehicle is currently listed in critical condition.
