Emotional Meeting in Port Henry Over Closed Bridge

Yet another community held another meeting about the Lake Champlain Bridge closing and this one in Port Henry, New York was an emotional one.

"Take over our lives so that we lose our jobs! We're human beings for christsake!. We pay so much money for infrastructure that's reliable!"

Many people at the meeting shared her sentiments and they yelled at DOT officials to do something about the bridge closure. DOT says it is offering free ferries and busses to get people across the lake. They also say they're listening to the pleas of the people and monitoring the situation
