Business Hurt By Bridge Closure

Businesses such as the Bridge Restaurant and the West Addison General Store are just two examples of several Addison County businesses that are being affected negatively by the closing of the Lake Champlain Bridge.

In some cases, ferries may not be able to accommodate heavy equipment.
