Vt. To Auction Ferry Slip

07/18/12 6:06AM

The state of Vermont is auctioning a custom-made ferry slip it built to help passengers cross Lake Champlain while a bridge was being replaced between West Addison and Crown Point, N.Y.

A 24-hour ferry carried passengers across the lake shortly after the old Lake Champlain Bridge was closed in late 2009 when it was found to be unsafe.

The ferry slip was built to help load and unload vehicles and people.

It includes two lift master gates, four counter weights, a ramp and a variety of other components.

The slip is being auctioned through the website auctionsinternational.com.

The auction runs through Aug. 7.
