State police said a construction worker was killed Wednesday morning after being hit by a dump truck on I-91 south in Holyoke. Reconstruction teams were on the scene by exit 15, which is in a long-term construction zone.
Traffic was halted at times for the investigation and drivers crept by the scene on the shoulder for several hours.
One travel lane was opened around 7 a.m. as investigators remained on scene.
The lane closures caused delays on I-91 for several hours and choked side streets in Holyoke as drivers attempted to find alternate ways to get around the crash scene.
