Why pull it down? Isn't Jim's beautiful photo testimony enough to preserve it? What a living contrast between nature and man's beautiful enhancement of it. No modern replacement would better it. Don't allow it.

The Champlain Bridge was closed this fall due to deterioration. It is to be demolished before the lake freezes this winter. Construction of a new bridge is being fast-tracked. There is much concern on the part of historic preservationists due to Crown Point and Chimney Point Historic Sites on each side of the lake. Some feel that the same NYSDOT that allowed the bridge to deteriorate so significantly will have little regard for the historical significance of these sites.
