"Escape" Helping Pedestrians Escape

The lobster hull "Escape" will help pedestrian escape from one side of Lake Champlain to the other. Fox 44 reports that the boat, docked at Vergennes, will become a pedestrian ferry while the Lake Champlain Bridge is closed for repairs. Beginning next week, the Escape will start carrying people from Vergennes, Vermont to Westport, New York, including commuters left stranded by the closing of the Champlain Bridge. The Escape will run six times a day, five days a week as long as the weather and the lake cooperate.
