ADDISON — State and local lawmakers on Tuesday urged Gov. James Douglas to dedicate $1 million in federal stimulus funds to help Addison County businesses — including farms — that have taken a financial hit since the Champlain Bridge was closed on Oct. 16.

Douglas quickly endorsed the $1 million request, but said the money should be spent in the broader context of statewide, $8.6 million economic development package that includes some initiatives the Legislature rejected last session.

ADDISON — Vermont and New York transportation officials said on Wednesday they are “encouraged” by the potential of establishing a temporary ferry crossing of Lake Champlain near the now-mothballed Crown Point Bridge, a move that would aid commuters and throw an economic lifeline to area businesses who depend on pass-by traffic.

Meanwhile, engineers continue to evaluate locations on both sides of the lake that could accommodate a temporary bridge, including a spot at the former ferry landing off Crown Point Road in Bridport.
