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.
