Bridge over Lake Champlain from Vermont to New York is Open
The Lake Champlain bridge from New York to Vermont is running over budget, as reported by the Burlington Free Press. The bridge is nearly 10% over budget. It was originally bid as a $69.6 million project, but not will likely run as high as $76 million. The new bridge replaces a structurally-unsound 82 year old bridge that was closed in 2009. The new bridge opened in November of 2011. Around 3,000 vehicles cross the bridge daily.
