Hi Jim: Thanks for the great shot and the information. The DAR is our favorite campsite in the area and the Bird Sanctuary one of our favorite destinations. dave hermon

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.

This year, 2009, the State of Vermont reinstalled another bridge, moved from Milton, Vermont, at this location. The new, "old" bridge is used strictly for pedestrian traffic.
