HOLGA - Two Champlain Bridges



On our recent trip to Montreal we went over two bridges named Champlain; one between Vermont and New York state and the other over the St Lawrence into Montreal, Canada.  The first was a smaller bridge in a rural area and the second a bigger bridge into a large city.

          Champlain Bridge between Chimney Point, Vt. and Crown Point, NY.  In 2009 the bridge was  deemed unsafe and removed by an explosive demolition.  A new bridge was built and opened in 2011.




                      Champlain Bridge, Montreal, PQ, Canada is much bigger and older bridge.
