Bike ferry service set to resume

Posted: Updated:
COLCHESTER, Vt. -

You'll be able to cross part of Lake Champlain by bike once again.

The popular Island Line Trail and bike ferry service will be fully open this summer.

The crossing has been shut down for the last two years following massive spring flooding in 2011; $1.5 million was raised to repair the trail and relaunch the ferry.

"The reality is this attracted a lot of attention for this corridor, it attracted a lot of enthusiasm to fix what we had lost and it brought partners together to look a new at how we can move forward," said Chapin Spencer of Local Motion.

The ferry is set to resume June 14. It will run for a total of 51 days this season-- more than doubling service from 2010.
