CROWN POINT, N.Y. (AP) - A limited number of copies of a book that tells the history of the original Lake Champlain Bridge are being made available to the public at no charge.
The 65-page booklet, titled "Spanning the Decades: The Lake Champlain Bridge Story," is illustrated with photos, paintings and memorabilia that tells the story of the span that was built in 1929 to connect Crown Point and Addison, Vt. It was closed in October 2009 after being deemed unsafe and demolished two months later.
The new Lake Champlain Bridge opened last November.
The publication is available at the Crown Point State Historic Site, the Lake Champlain Visitors Center in Crown Point, the Chimney Point State Historic Site in Addison and the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum in Vergennes, Vt.
The booklet is also available online at www.dot.ny.gov.
