The primary ferry crossing on Lake Champlain between New York and Vermont is closed this afternoon.

One of the Lake Champlain ferry routes between Vermont and New York suspended crossings early on Monday because of strong winds from Hurricane Sandy.

The Lake Champlain Transportation Company said Monday's last trip of the ferry between Essex, N.Y. and Charlotte, Vt., was scheduled at 5:30 p.m. rather than the usual late evening crossing.

The company's 24-hour service between Grand Isle, Vt. and Cumberland Head, N.Y., continued to operate normally.
