MORRISTOWN, Vt. (AP) - Vermont officials are lauding the opening of a new road around Morrisville that has been in the planning stages on and off for more than 50 years.

The Morristown Alternative Truck Route opened Friday, and is designed to route the truck traffic that has clogged downtown Morrisville for years around the village.

The new, nearly 2-mile section of Vermont Route 100 goes from near the Bishop Marshall School southwest of Morrisville village in Morristown to connect with Vermont Route 15 north of the village center.

The cost of the project was nearly $31 million.
