Fairlee culvert replacement to close Route 244 through weekend

FAIRLEE, Vt. (WCAX) Transportation officials say Route 244 in Fairlee will be closed starting Friday night and going through the weekend for a culvert replacement.

VTrans say it will start at 6 p.m. Friday and go through Monday morning.

Officials say it's near the Route 5 and Route 244 interchange which is close to the I-91 overpass.

They say the contractor needs full access to the road so that's why it's being closed.

Detours will be in place.
