HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – Construction work caused some heavy delays on Interstate 91 northbound between Holyoke and Northampton Friday morning.

At around 9:45 A.M., traffic was backed up from Exit 17 in Holyoke all the way up to Exit 18 in Northampton.

State Police Sgt. Gary Hebert told 22News that this is all due to construction work near Exit 18. Traffic had been down to a single lane just past the former Mount Tom power plant.

Traffic is now flowing freely through the area.
