WEST ADDISON, Vt. — An engineer say the center arch of the new Lake Champlain bridge from Vermont to New York should be lifted into place by the end of the month.
The 402-foot center span of the bridge from West Addison, Vt., to Crown Point, N.Y., is being built at a New York marina two miles north of the bridge site.
John Grady of the New York Department of Transportation says workers are finishing the cable support system of the arch. Once that is done, the arch will be loaded onto two barges and moved to the bridge site where it will be lifted into place.
Grady tells WCAX-TV he hopes the arch can be installed by the end of the month.
The bridge is scheduled to open in October.
