WEST ADDISON — The New York State Department of Transportation on Friday announced tentative plans to float the center arch span of the new Champlain Bridge to the construction site and lift it into place this week.

Officials stopped short of offering a specific date for the much-anticipated procedure, noting the potential for weather-related delays.

ADDISON — A bi-state celebration of the opening of the new Champlain Bridge originally scheduled for mid-October has been postponed until May because organizers could not get a guarantee from New York transportation officials that the new span will be completed on time.

An ad hoc Lake Champlain Bridge Community (LCBC) panel, made up of more than 50 volunteers from Vermont and New York, has been planning a two-day celebration to mark the unveiling of the $70 million Champlain Bridge that will link West Addison with Crown Point, N.Y.

“We have had to contend with the flood conditions and they have had an impact on our progress,” said John Grady, construction engineer for the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT).
