Alburg-Rouses Point Bridge

Title:
Alburg-Rouses Point Bridge
Town:
Alburg
County:
Grand Isle
State:
Vermont
Date:
1987-04
Description:
This photo was taken during construction of the new Alburg-Rouses Point Bridge being built on US Route 2 across Lake Champlain between Alburg, VT and Rouses Point, NY. This photo shows a transit mix concrete truck on the deck of the old bridge pumping concrete to a concrete pump truck on a barge, which in turn, is pumping the concrete to one of the piers of the new bridge to the right of this picture. Notice the ice on the bay in the upper portion of the picture. There is a fishing shanty and several ice fishermen on the ice. This photo was taken in early April 1987. The old bridge built in 1938 was still in excellent condition except for the swing span mechanism, which was getting old and tired and the concrete deck was getting a little rough. The Lake Champlain Bridge Commission had taken great care of this 50 year old bridge. However, it was becoming obsolete due to its narrow width and delays when the swing span had to be opened to allow boat traffic to pass. The new bridge is 60 feet above ordinary high water and will allow most boats to pass. There is a high volume of trucks that use this bridge. On the far side of the lake, a forested shoreline is visible.
