MONTPELIER, Vt. - Ledge scaling will begin on I-89 in Montpelier next week. 

A press release says starting on April 21, crews will be hand scaling the ledge on the northbound side of I-89 between the Route 12 overpass and the Exit 8 off ramp. 

Exit 8 will remain open and currently there are no planned traffic interruptions. There is a planned shoulder closure along the work zone, leaving both northbound lanes of the interstate open for travel. Officials say travel may be reduced to one lane through the construction zone for a day while crews set up the barrier for the shoulder closure. 

Crews are expected to complete the work in a month, weather permitting.
