We entered Vermont from New York by crossing the Lake Champlain Bridge. This bridge, completed in 2011, was built using a “modified network tied arch design”, also known as a “basket handle”. The recently completed Eggners Ferry Bridge (that we crossed in May to get to Kenlake State Resort Park near Murray, KY), was built using a similar design. The Lake Champlain Bridge replaced the Champlain Bridge after state inspectors determined that it was structurally unsafe.
