Vt. marks opening of welcome center in Bennington

Posted: Updated:

BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Officials are celebrating the opening of a new welcome center in the southern Vermont town of Bennington.

Gov. Peter Shumlin and Buildings Commissioners Michael Obuchowski are hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday at noon.

Obuchowski says the new center, which opened a month ago, "is poised to ensure visitors get a warm and friendly welcome when they stop to rest or refresh themselves on their way through Vermont."

Representatives from Vermont's congressional delegation, the federal Highway Administration and the Vermont Agency of Transportation plan to attend the event.

The project was paid for by federal transportation funds and a congressional earmark.
