Bridge Out!

The Crown Point Bridge could be closed a long time! Yeah, like most of the winter. The bridge closed last Friday and WCAX TV reports that its because inspectors found an eroding concrete pier near the surface of the water. Crews were just wrapping up other work on the bridge and getting ready to open the two lanes of traffic to four when inspectors found the problems. So how will people get across Lake Champlain? Ferry! Officials at Fort Ticonderoga Ferry say the ferry's been swamped with people. Other area ferry companies are ramping up service.
