Crown Point, NY, Nov 08, 2011 — A crisis that disrupted tourism, farming and family ties along the Champlain Valley came to an end yesterday, as officials from New York and Vermont cut the ribbon for the new Crown Point bridge.
The $70 million structure re-establishes the link from Crown Point to Addison, Vermont. The ceremony was attended by dignitaries, by hundreds of local residents, and by a group of "29ers."
They're the folks who were also on hand in 1929 when the first bridge was unveiled. Martha Foley has more.
