The floating bridge on VT-65 in Brookfield has reopenned. The bridge, which is believed to be the only floating bridge in the country, was closed in 2008 for repairs when it's floatation system began to fail causing the bridge to be partially submerged.
This is the seventh time the bridge has been rebuilt. The original was built in 1820 by local townspeople who strapped together logs to cross the frozen Sunset Lake, after a man fell through the ice and drown. The new bridge is designed to last 100 years.
