Even More Info on Bridge Alternatives

The Vermont and New York governors have announced transportation alternatives and informational meetings in the wake of the abrupt closure of the Champlain Bridge on Oct. 16 that left thousands of commuters and travelers finding another way to cross Lake Champlain. The governors announced in a joint statement that all ferries and buses to help travelers will be free starting today. The lake's ferries run from Essex, Essex County, to Charlotte, Vt., and between Ticonderoga, Essex County, and Shoreham, Vt. The operating hours for the ferries also have been extended.
