MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Agency of Transportation is getting a federal grant of nearly $1 million to put up traffic monitoring devices on several locations along Interstate 89 affecting South Burlington, Colchester and Williston, and along a road in Essex.

The project is designed to boost traffic monitoring along high-volume roads.

Charlie Baker, executive director of the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission, said the project will seek to reduce commuter congestion and crashes.

The grant will be used to deploy blue tooth monitoring devices on up to five transportation corridors in four municipalities: I-89 Exit 14 in South Burlington; I-89 Exits 16 and 17 in Colchester; Route 289 in Essex; and Vermont 2/2A, or I-89, Exit 12, in Williston.
