MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Trains which have caused friction in Vermont’s capital in the past are running again.

The Barre-Montpelier Times Argus reports (https://bit.ly/1Rlqc2K ) a train carrying granite blocks through central Vermont, including Montpelier, began running earlier this week for the first time in several years.

NorthEast Materials Group General Manager Eric Morton says the contents go to a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers project in upstate New York. He says granite will be used to repair a breakwater and expects the project to run for several months over the summer.

In 2010, some Montpelier businesses and city officials complained saying the Vermont Agency of Transportation gave them little or no information about the projects.

City officials in Barre and Montpelier say they have not received any complaints yet.
