    ST. JOHNSBURY — Several major Vermont highway projects are taking place this year in the Lyndonville and St. Johnsbury areas, at a cost of about $21 million.

    An 8.5-mile stretch of Interstate 91 from Exit 20 to Exit 23 in St. Johnsbury will be rebuilt, both north and southbound lanes.

    Also planned are repaving of Route 5 between St. Johnsbury and Lyndonville and the rebuilding of rail crossings on state highways in the two communities.

    Construction was scheduled to start Tuesday and run through mid-October.

    Mike Fowler, pavement design engineer for the Vermont Agency of Transportation, said the I-91 stretch has had “higher than average” accidents.
