Lake Champlain Bridge

Flatiron constructed the new Lake Champlain Bridge in northern New York State. The new two-lane steel arch-span structure replaces a structurally deficient two-lane bridge demolished in December 2009. Spanning Lake Champlain, the new 2,200-foot-long bridge reconnects Essex County, N.Y. and Addison County, Vt. 

For two years, those travelling between the two counties relied either on a 100-mile detour around the lake or a ferry system initiated after the old structure was closed. Now that construction is complete, motorists can enjoy a delay-free crossing. The impact to the local community was the driving factor for the aggressive 490-day completion schedule.
