St. Alabans Harbor Navigation Project

St. Albans Harbor in St. Albans is located on the northeastern shore of St. Albans Bay in Lake Champlain, about 15 miles south of the United States-Canada border and 35 miles north of Burlington. The harbor is used mainly for recreational boating.

The project involved removing boulders and other obstructions in the vicinity of the wharves to a depth of 6.5 feet. Completed in 1913, the project improved accessibility to the wharves and navigational safety for boats carrying passengers and freight.
