commuters who travel between Vermont and New York will be in the unusual situation today of taking a
ferry to work, but returning home on a bridge. The
Champlain Bridge between West Addison and Crown Point will open Monday with a ribbon cutting ceremony. People on both sides
of the lake have been waiting for this day.
Hundreds of people gathered on Lake Champlain to watch the arrival of the final piece of steel of a
new bridge that will soon re-connect Vermont and New York. Two years ago,
the original bridge was suddenly closed because inspectors declared it unsafe.
There’s a big
engineering project under way on southern Lake Champlain. The huge arch that will be at the center of the new Lake Champlain Bridge between West
Addison and Crown Point is being installed today.
