Interstate 89 north bound, just north of Exit 12 between Williston and South Burlington, has the passing lane closed (so down to one lane in that area) due to a jack-knifed tractor trailer unit.  This is expected to last for another 25 – 30 minutes - Specific details are not yet available and updates will be forthcoming.


Motorists should expect delays in the area, or seek alternate routes.  The public can check the website for road conditions. 

Please do not call 911 or State Police for road conditions.
