The traveling public is advised to expect traffic delays on I-91 northbound between Exits 2 and 3 in the Brattleboro area. These delays are likely to occur during periods of high traffic volume. Expect delays on I-91 Northbound on Friday, August 29 afternoon and evening, and on I-91 Southbound on Sunday, August 31 afternoon. Special consideration should be given to the start and end of the Labor Day holiday (Monday, September 1st) as well.
Motorists with flexible travel plans are encouraged to schedule their travel to avoid high travel periods or use VT Route 5 as an alternate route.

An alternate route for the West River Trail that provides recreational use of the trail near the construction access road has been opened at the Marina Trailhead. Signage has been installed providing clear direction to recreational users of the trail. There are intersections between construction access and the trail; users are strongly encouraged to exercise extreme caution at these intersections. As an additional safety precaution, users of the West River Trail are reminded to keep pets on a leash when using the trail in this area.
