Blasting for Bridge Construction May Cause I-89 Delays

Blasting for the new bridge spanning U.S. Route 2 in Richmond will cause traffic to be stopped on I-89 North and South-bound at 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Monday and Tuesday this week. Travelers between exit 11 in Richmond and exit 12 in Williston should expect about 10 minutes delays during each blasting period, VTrans officials stated in a press release. Traffic will also be stopped on U.S. Route 2, Johnnie Brook Road, Kenyon Road and the junction of Routes 2 and 117.

The blasting is part of the  Checkerhouse Bridge construction project in Richmond. Check out the project’s website to learn more.
