Bridge Closing a Disaster in VT

Vermont has also declared an emergency in the wake of the closing of the bridge. The Agency of Transportation Secretary David Dill has declard an emergency over the sudden clsoing of the Crown Point Bridge. He tells the Rutland Herald that this kind of emergency is different than the kind that can be declared after a disaster. Dill said this emergency declaration could help Vermont get federal aid and juggle state money to fix the bridge. New York state closed the bridge on Friday after it declared it unsafe.
