New York Governor David Paterson has declared a disaster in communities disrupted by the emergency closing of the Champlain Bridge to Vermont last Friday. Fox 44 reports that Paterson said the goal is to speed repairs and direct more state and federal resources to residents and businesses taking an economic hit. Fox 44 reports that the state has opened an outreach center at the site of the bridge. The toll free number is at our website. The State outreach center is located in the Lake Champlain Visitors Center at 814 Bridge Rd. in Crown Point.
