Rain damages road rebuilt after Irene

Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin said Thursday that a main road that had been rebuilt after Tropical Storm Irene has been damaged once again by the latest dose of heavy rain in the state.

‘‘We’re looking at areas of road that have turned to riverbed that we rebuilt just two years ago this August,’’ Shumlin said of Route 100 in Granville. ‘‘So it’s discouraging.’’ He said crews are working on the road.


Shumlin said as much as 4 inches of rain fell Wednesday, and more was expected in the area Thursday night.

Roads also have been damaged in Braintree, Roxbury, Rochester, and Huntington.
