Engineers dynamited the massive Crown Point Bridge that links Vermont and New York across Lake Champlain on Monday. The 80-year-old bridge was closed without warning last fall because of safety concerns. Its destruction punctuates a major transportation crisis that has worsened as the lake begins to ice up, forcing motorists to make 100-mile detours. A new bridge is expected to open in 2011.
