AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) The Maine Department of Transportation is going to spend up to four weeks helping rebuild roads and bridges in Vermont damaged by flooding from Tropical Storm Irene.

The 149 workers left Maine on Aug. 30 with their dump trucks, loaders, excavators and other pieces of heavy equipment.

Some of the Maine crews will work in the Dummerston area of southeastern Vermont while others will work in the White River Junction area, about 70 mi. north of the Massachusetts border.

About 200 Maine National Guardsmen also are in Vermont helping repair flood damage

Department of Transportation spokesman Mark Latti told the Kennebec Journal Maine will help Vermont for up to four weeks, with individual workers staying up to two weeks before others will be brought in to take their place.
