MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) Plans for a temporary Lake Champlain ferry service aimed at providing a temporary link for the now-closed Lake Champlain Bridge are moving ahead, with the state of Vermont hiring a contractor to build the ferry landing on the Vermont side.

The state Agency of Transportation chose Kubricky Construction, of Mechanicville, N.Y., to do the Vermont land work. Starting Nov. 30, the company will build approach roads in preparation for in-water construction of ferry docks. Similar work is under way on the New York side.

The bridge, linking Crown Point, N.Y., and West Addison, Vt., was closed suddenly Oct. 16 amid safety concerns. The states of Vermont and New York plan to demolish it and build a new one, and the ferry service is being started to carry vehicles across Lake Champlain until the new one is built.
