Ferry Between Basin Harbor Club and Westport Now Running

A pedestrian ferry provided by the Basin Harbor Club started running yesterday. The ferry runs between Westport and Basin Harbor, Vt., providing transportation for people who would be using the Crown Point Bridge if it were open. The Minerondack Daily News reports that the Essex County Board of Supervisors' Ways and Means Committee unanimously passed a resolution yesterday authorizing shuttle bus service to the ferry in Essex, Ticonderoga and wherever else county Transportation Coordinator Nancy Dougal thinks it necessary, including Westport. The bus service from AuSable Forks to Lake Placid has already been canceled, as the bus is needed for the shuttle.
