Dec 14, 2009 — State officials say a new bridge across Lake Champlain between Crown Point, NY and Addison, VT will be open to traffic in the summer of 2011. That's at least a year (and likely several years) sooner than previously predicted. The new schedule follows a transportation crisis that began in mid-October when the Crown Point bridge was abruptly closed because of safety concerns. Engineers still say the aging structure is fragile and could topple at any times. Brian Mann has our story.
