Blasting preps slow traffic on Interstate 89

Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -

Drivers on Interstate 89 in Montpelier faced delays Tuesday. That's because state transportation officials are scaling the rock ledge to prepare for blasting.

The northbound on-ramp to Interstate 89 will be closed starting next week. Drivers will need to take a detour. It could stay that way for up to a month while crews blast away part of the ledge that geologists say could fall into the road.
