North Hero–Grand Isle Drawbridge

The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) is replacing Bridge 8 on US 2 between the towns of North Hero and Grand Isle, Vermont. This drawbridge is a historic twin leaf bascule bridge, and the only vehicular movable bridge in the State of Vermont. Construction began in June 2018 and the estimated completion date is in 2023. The VTrans drone pilot completed a flyover of the project in October 2021. The video can be viewed here.
Vessel Transit Restriction – Concrete work commenced on May 15, 2022 and will continue through the Summer of 2022.  During the construction one leaf will remain closed reducing the horizontal clearance through the bridge to 40 feet. Due to the reduction only one way traffic through the bridge will be permitted.  A traffic control vessel will be on-scene to ensure vessel meeting and overtaking situations are avoided while approaching and transiting through the bridge.  Mariners are advised to contact the bridge tender for transit instructions via Channel 13 or by calling 802-372-4360.  Mariners are advised to plan their transits accordingly and exercise caution when transiting the area. Chart 14781 LNM 21/22 (CGD1). Questions may be directed to Jacqueline Dagesse, Public Outreach Manager, at 802-324-5522.
