SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) Officials said drivers should expect a slightly longer commute while a South Burlington, Vt., road is closed for construction.

WCAX-TV reported Hinesburg Road will be shut down for two months while crews install a 115-ft. box culvert. Officials said the culvert will help provide better flow for Potash Pond drainage.

Drivers would normally use Market Street as a detour, but officials said it also will be under construction starting mid-June.

The Hinesburg Road project is expected to cost $1.5 million. Construction began June 5, and the project will be complete by mid-August.

Transportation officials said drivers should expect an extra five minutes on their commute.
