At Fair Haven, US 4 in New York enters the state of Vermont from Albany, immediately becoming a freeway. This section of the highway is about 30 kilometers long and runs past Rutland. One comes here through hilly to mountainous forest area. Just west of Rutland, the road crosses the ridge of the Green Mountains, reaching the 17,000-population town, Vermont’s second largest city. The highway runs to the south side of Rutland, after which the road becomes a 2×2 trunk with US 7from Bennington forms the southern approach road to Rutland. Both roads are only briefly double-numbered, in the center of Rutland US 4 exits east, and US 7 continues to Burlington in the north. One then comes through low mountain ranges with peaks up to about 1200 meters. Ski areas are also located here. The road passes through a wooded and fairly sparsely populated area, crossing only two State Routes on the 60 kilometers to White River Junction. To the east the area becomes less high, but remains hilly. Just before White River Junction you cross Interstate 89, the highway from Burlington and Montpelier to Concord and Boston.
