    COLCHESTER Two year after Lake Champlain flooding destroyed part of it, the Colchester Causeway recreational path has been restored for bicyclists, runners, walkers and anglers.

    The Colchester Causeway, along with a stretch to the north in South Hero, is a five-mile, unpaved northern portion of the Island Line Trail. It connects to the south to Colchesters Airport Park and the 7.5-mile paved Burlington Bike Path.

    Restoration work took place last year from May to October and cost $500,000.

    Seventy-five percent of the money to repair the causeway came from FEMA, and 15 percent came from the state. The remaining 10 percent came largely from Burlington-based nonprofit Local Motion and an anonymous donor.
