Officials in St. Albans have decided to build a temporary road adjacent to one that’s been flooded by Lake Champlain.

The St. Albans Town Selectboard voted Monday to build the 300-foot road adjacent to Hathaway Point Road. The Selectboard set a cap on construction expenses at $50,000.

The St. Albans Messenger reports that the road would consist of barriers and stone, creating a travel lane through the 2-foot deep floodwaters and would be removed once the water recedes.
