MORRISVILLE, Vt. (AP) - Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin and others are going to be marking the opening of a long-planned highway bypass around downtown Morrisville.

Beginning at noon on Friday, the roadway will be open to pedestrians.

A ribbon cutting is planned for Friday afternoon followed by an auto parade.

Morrisville is at the junctions of Vermont Routes 100 and 15 and is frequently a traffic bottleneck. Heavy truck traffic through the center of town has been a regular feature of life there.

The new road runs around the village through adjacent Morristown.

Construction began in 2012.
