    CROWN POINT, N.Y. - Continuing problems with the lights on the Lake Champlain Bridge connecting New York and Vermont are expected to be fixed this week.

    The New York state Department of Transportation told the Press-Republican of Plattsburgh that a blown electronic timer knocked out most of the lights on the span Tuesday night.

    An Albany-area electrical contractor has been repairing wiring and sealing junction boxes on the bridge after problems arose over the winter with many of the span's more than 300 LED lights, causing them to flicker.

    DOT officials say all the lights are expected to be working on Friday night.

    The new $76 million Champlain Bridge opened in 2011 to replace the 80-year-old original span that was declared unsafe and then destroyed by controlled explosives four years ago.
