After construction closed a section of Route 206 southbound in Hillsborough for hours on Thursday morning, causing major traffic delays, police said both lanes had been reopened.

Hillsborough police, however, said to expect delays in the area to continue when the department sent an alert at 11:45 a.m. saying the lane was reopened. 

The replacement of a telephone pole on the road at the railroad bridge just north of Old Champlain Road was causing major delays in both directions during morning hours. The southbound lane between Old Camplain Road and Brown Avenue was closed, resulting in north and southbound traffic having to share the single southbound lane.

Traffic at 10 a.m. was backed up for more than a mile in the northbound direction, with similar delays for southbound traffic. 

Hillsborough police had issued an alert earlier Thursday morning saying the lane closure was expected to last until 3 p.m.
