    MONTPELIER — Vermont motorists are being warned that repairs to a washed out section of Interstate 89 on French Hill between Richmond and Williston could cause significant traffic delays for southbound drivers.

    Crews from the Vermont Agency of Transportation will be working Wednesday to repair the damage caused by heavy rains on Tuesday that deposited rocks and gravel on the roadway.

    The National Weather Service says more heavy rain is forecast for Vermont for Wednesday.

    A number of roads in Chittenden County were closed by Tuesday’s storms.

    Green Mountain Power had hundreds of outages Tuesday night but service later was fully restored. Spokeswoman Dorothy Schnure says high winds, soggy ground and intense lightening could bring the threat of widespread outages over the next few days.
