Vermont dealing with road damage from heavy rain

The Associated Press

GRANVILLE, Vt. - Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin said Thursday a main road that had been rebuilt after Tropical Storm Irene has been damaged once again by the latest dose of heavy rain in the state.

"We're looking at areas of road that have turned to riverbed that we rebuilt just two years ago this August," Shumlin said of Route 100 in Granville.

Parts of Route 100 were heavily damaged during Irene in 2011, isolating a number of communities, including Granville in the central part of the state.

Shumlin said as much as 4 inches of rain fell Wednesday, and more was expected in the area Thursday night. Roads also have been damaged in Braintree, Roxbury, Rochester and Huntington.
