DERBY LINE — Motorists traveling on Interstate 91 near the U.S./Canadian border should expect single lane closures and shifting traffic patterns as crews continue paving and berm removal work in both northbound and southbound lanes.

The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) is advising drivers to use caution, especially when merging into traffic from on-ramps, and motorcyclists should be aware of grooved surfaces throughout the construction zone.

The Derby IM 091-3(56) project, which began in the spring of 2024, extends from approximately one mile south of Exit 27 to the Canadian border, covering just over 8 miles of I-91. Construction activities include pothole repair, milling and paving of a leveling course (shim layer) and wearing course, pavement markings, guardrail rehabilitation, and other related highway items.

Crews are currently focused on paving the shim course throughout the entire project area and will soon begin removing berm material from the shoulders along the route. Single lane closures with speed reductions will be in place to protect each work area as it progresses.

The project is expected to be completed in the fall of 2024. Motorists are encouraged to allow for extra travel time and exercise patience when traveling through the construction zone to ensure the safety of both drivers and construction workers.
