Lake Champlain ferry planned by month's end
Work continued Wednesday on ramps for a planned ferry service near the now-destroyed Lake Champlain Bridge, but a firm opening date for the ferry remains uncertain.
The bridge was a key commuter route between New York state and Addison County, but the span was closed in October after inspections showed dangerous deterioration. The bridge was demolished in December, and a new span is scheduled to open in 2011.
A ferry just south of the bridge site is expected to help commuters travel between Vermont and New York while a new bridge is built.
Vermont Transportation Agency spokesman John Zicconi said an opening date has not been set, but the construction is on pace to allow the ferry to start operating sometime near the end of the month, as originally planned.Read more

I hope this happens on schedule. I have been traveling to Essex to take the Ferry over to get to Burlington. It is not the best road to travel coming out of Essex at night. I for one will be glad when the new ferry opens and makes travel easier for all.

I was told tonight that the ny side of the ramps are done its just VT that has to complete. This ferry can't get done soon enough for me - traveling two hours both ways is getting old quick. I pray your time frame is right.
