Vermont Transportation Agency

A senior official with Vermont's Transportation Agency says he's nervous about whether the state will have enough snowplow drivers this winter.

Vermont State Police say they have caught at least six drivers in three weeks for speeding in excess of 100 mph along the state's highways.

Vermont Transportation Agency officials say a federal grant application that would have been used to upgrade the rails in an 11-mile stretch between Rutland and Burlington was rejected by federal transportation officials.

The Vermont Transportation Agency is considering design changes at the airport that serves Bennington to help it meet federal requirements due to take effect in 2015.

State Aviation Administrator Guy Rouelle says the new regulations require "safety areas" at each end of the runways for planes that over- or under-shoot their landing approaches.

The west end of the runway at the William H. Morse state airport is considered deficient.

He says the state has contracted with a design engineer to develop several alternative solutions.
