WEST ADDISON, Vt. (AP) - The dropping water level on Lake Champlain is enabling construction crews to resume work on the archway of the new bridge between Vermont and New York.
The archway is being built at a marina in Port Henry, N.Y. Work stalled last month because of the record flooding on the lake.
New York State Transportation Engineer John Grady tells Vermont Public Radio the water has receded and workers have begun assembling the floor of the archway. The archway will be floated to the bridge site later this year.
Grady says the flooding did cause some delays in the construction of the approach spans on the Crown Point, N.Y., and West Addison, Vt., approaches to the bridge.
