WATERBURY, Vt. (AP) - Officials say the first part of a bridge construction project in Vermont is complete.

VTrans Deputy Secretary Chris Cole tells WCAX-TV (https://bit.ly/1eaxypV ) that the southbound bridge was finished earlier this week. It is the first part of an $11 million rehabilitation of three bridges on Interstate 89 in Waterbury. Construction started earlier this year.

Cole says new technology has helped ensure that traffic flowed smoothly throughout the project.

He says that they have been using a “smart work zone,” which uses Bluetooth signals to gauge how fast traffic is moving through the work zone so drivers ahead can be alerted with message boards of how long it will take to get through.

The second part of the project is slated for completion in October.
