Truck causes section of I-91 closed this afternoon

in Uncategorized

BARTON — A tractor-trailer caused a section of I-91 in Orleans County to be closed Tuesday afternoon.

The incident took place near the Barton-Glover exit, after slick road conditions this morning caused a tractor-trailer unit to slide off the road and into the median.

The Vermont State Police say they had to shut down Interstate 91 north between the Barton-Glover exit, and the Orleans-Irasburg exit, so that the rig could be removed.

Signs were put up advising that the road was closed at around 1 p.m.

Northbound traffic was re-routed off in Barton.

That section of the road was re-opened at around 3 p.m.
