MIDDLEBURY — About three years after the old Champlain Bridge was closed due to safety concerns, workers will soon begin the final phase of work on the new Lake Champlain Bridge project.

That work will involve upgrades to property on the Vermont side of the span to include construction of a new boat launch, two gravel parking lots and walking paths with interpretive signs.

Crowds turned out to watch the Champlain Bridge Grand Parade on May 19, but for some in the crowd, this wasn't the first time.

Art Clifford of Starksboro was just a boy in 1929, but he traveled over to Addison with his family to watch the festivities that opened up the first Champlain Bridge. He was one of the '29ers who attended this year, and he sat down with Robinson Elementary School students to chat about what life was like back in 1929.

The parade mimicked many elements the original opening parade in 1929, which was attended by then New York Governor Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

WEST ADDISON — A legion of dignitaries and hundreds of residents from both sides of Lake Champlain marked the much-anticipated opening of the new Champlain Bridge on Monday afternoon.

Gov. Peter Shumlin and state Rep. Diane Lanpher, D-Vergennes, were among the Vermont delegates who helped cut the ribbon on the $76 million bridge that was two years in the making. The former Champlain Bridge, build in 1929, was abruptly closed on Oct. 16, 2009, after it was deemed to be unsafe for travel.
