Bridge update this morning...

The Associated Press reports that officials with the state Department of Transportation will provide an update on the Lake Champlain bridge project.

Here's the AP brief:

New York state transportation officials and the contractor building the new bridge across southern Lake Champlain will give the public an update on the $70 million project.

Transportation officials and Colorado-based Flatiron Constructors will hold a news conference and public session Thursday at the Crown Point State Historic Site.

Officials postponed an earlier planned update on Nov. 12 but gave no reason why.

The public meeting is planned for 2 p.m., with a press event scheduled for 10:30 a.m.

The original bridge linking Crown Point and Addison, Vt., was demolished in December 2009, about two months after engineers found severe erosion on the 80-year-old span's concrete piers.

The new bridge is expected to open by next October.
