The Lake Champlain Transportation's ferry was iced in at the Charlotte dock in March.
The Charlotte, Vermont and Essex, New York ferry will begin running again on Thursday.

Lake Champlain Transportation says the first boat will leave Vermont at 6:00 a.m. The ferry crossing was shut down earlier this year because of ice on Lake Champlain.

An ice-breaker boat that normally keeps the route open year-round was shifted south to run a temporary service at the site of a new bridge under construction in West Addison, Vermont. 

That decision left commuters who rely on the Charlotte-Essex ferry year-round dealing with a two-hour detour.
