While lake levels have crested and are beginning to recede, strong winds from the north are now continuing to affect some roads.  VTrans is monitoring the situation, and taking immediate action when needed to shore up the roads affected.  Traffic controls are also in place to assist construction vehicles for road improvement operations that continue throughout the day in some areas.  Delays can be expected along Route 2 between Milton and the Islands.  Travelers are cautioned to please drive slowly and, if possible, to avoid the area during commuting times.  Road work is expected to continue throughout the area until at least Wednesday. Road Updates as of Monday, 4 pm: Ongoing Areas of Concern: Route 2 / Sandbar / Causeway:   Water is still over the road surface (up to 6 inches in some areas), and travel is slow.  VTrans has completed installation of jersey barriers which are intended to delineate the edge of the roadway and keep debris out of the travel way.  Crews have armored the south side of the causeway with large stone and are currently working on armoring the north side of the causeway.  Crews expect to be done with armoring the causeway by Wednesday. Route 2 / City Bay  and Carry Bay:  Crews have worked to armor portions of the banks with large stone.  Armoring work is complete for now, but is being monitored. Route 2 / Alburgh-North Hero Bridge / ‘Mother’s Bend’:  Crews have worked to armor portions of the banks with large stone.  Armoring work is complete for now, but is being monitored. Route 2 / Just north of Alburgh-North Hero Bridge:  Crews have installed jersey barrier and built up the roadbed with crushed stone.  The work is done, and the area is being monitored. Route 78 / Swanton:  Crews continue to armor the banks with large stone, and build berms to keep debris out of the road.  Crews expect to be done with the armoring by Wednesday.  Delineators have been installed to define the edge of the roadway.  Road is now clear of water. Route 129 / Ilse La Motte:  Traffic down to one lane as crews continue to armor the causeway with large stone, and build berms to keep debris out of the road.  Crews expect to be done with the armoring by Wednesday.  Areas with water over the road are being constantly monitored. Travelers should proceed with caution. Route 17 in Chimney Point (previously closed) remains open. I-89 Southbound in Milton reduced to one-lane traffic due to instability of the right lane. Route 118 between Montgomery and Belvidere is down to one lane in  multiple locations. These are extended events that will last until further notice. Route 122 in Lyndon, between the Interstate and Wheelock Road, is down to one lane due to slope failure.  This will be an extended event that will last until further notice. Route 114 between Canaan and Island Pond, through Norton, is down to one lane in several areas due to multiple slope failures. State Road Closures: Route 7 / Highgate / ‘Tyler Place’:   Closed due to flooding and debris.  Area is being monitored and we anticipate being able to open the road later in the week. Route 36 in St. Albans, between Georgia Shore Road and McQuam Road, is closed due to flooding. Motorists are advised to avoid this section of roadway. We anticipate an extended closure. Route 125 near Chimney Point is closed approximately 13 miles west of Middlebury.  Smugglers Notch, Jeffersonville to Stowe, remains closed, weather pending. Note that the Chimney Point and Grand Isle ferries are still running on schedule.last_img read more

DES MOINES, Iowa – The Marquette University women’s soccer team edged the Drake University women’s soccer team, 2-1, Sunday, Sept. 9 at the Cownie Soccer Complex. South Dakota 9/13/2018 – 6 PM “I felt we were good defensively from front to back for much of the game, but conceded two goals that we have to make a team like Marquette work harder for,” said head coach Lindsey Horner. “The first one was incredibly unlucky and the second one we got punished for not competing for an air ball and not properly clearing the second ball. We were right in this game, which is something we couldn’t say a year ago at their place. We have improved in a lot of ways, and gained a lot of experience in the first half of our season. In speaking with the team we emphasized that this first half of the season was a complete grind with the road swings and quality of opponents. We took some lumps but we also learned so much from each game. This next phase of our season prior to conference we need to be able to put together complete performances in order gain results. These next three games are big for us before we head into MVC play and we are looking forward to Thursday night. We are so pleased with Vanessa to convert the goal. She was out all last year, prior to that was a left forward for two years, and today demonstrated how good she can be as a left back on both sides of the ball.” PDF Box Score Watch Live Out of halftime, Kavan’s penalty kick evened the match in the 46th minute (46:17).
