    ARLINGTON — Officials in the Vermont town of Arlington are watching debris under a local bridge left over from Tropical Storm Irene as they monitor Hurricane Sandy.

    A project manager with state Agency of Transportation said most of the debris under the bridge on Route 313 was removed by a contractor using an excavator, but some logs had become jammed so the machine could not reach them. He said the problem now is a log caught under the bridge by a tree, which could collect more debris if Sandy washes it down the river.

    The Bennington Banner reported that last year, a number of town bridges had problems with river debris getting caught beneath them and causing damage.
