Crews are working on the finishing touches on a vital link between New York and Vermont over Lake Champlain. While the originally planned October reopening day has passed, no rescheduled date has been announced.
A routine inspection of the Crown Point Bridge in October 2009 found unexpectedly high levels of pier deterioration, prompting the closure of the 2,184-ft-long steel-truss bridge. The New York City office of HNTB Corp. led the fast-tracked design for a new link between Crown Point, N.Y., and West Addison, Vt. The more than 3,000 daily users of the bridge have no other crossing within 100 miles.
