The New Lake Champlain Bridge spanning from West Addison, Vt. to Crown Point, N.Y. is set to open this afternoon almost two years after the old bridge was closed and taken down after being deemed unsafe.
The $70 million project comes as relief to commuters, who had to find alternative means of crossing the lake during construction. WCAX-TV reported this morning that there is no word yet whether the temporary ferry that operated adjacent to the bridge will stop operation today.
I will be in the area to check out the new bridge Thursday. If anyone ventures down today for the ribbon-cutting and opening, post a comment or a picture.
