BROOKFIELD, Vt. -

Replacement of the historic floating bridge in Brookfield is finally underway.

The pontoon bridge across Sunset Lake was originally built in 1820. It's one of only two floating bridges in the United States.

The bridge has been closed to traffic for six years. The replacement project got pushed back when the state had to redirect resources following Tropical Storm Irene, but the removal of the old bridge is now underway with hopes of having a new bridge in place this summer.
