Repairs underway to fix Stillwater Lift Bridge

Posted by: Tim Harlow Updated: June 17, 2013 - 8:03 AM

The Stillwater Lift Bridge is broken, but it is not affecting vehicular traffic. River traffic is unable to get through.


A cable frayed and snapped as the bridge was being lowered just after 8 p.m. Sunday. MnDOT has inspection and repair crews on the scene.


It could take until noon or longer to fix the problem, said MnDOT spokesman Kent Barnard.


“These things can take a while," he said.  Crews also will be checking to be sure there was no other damage.


The bridge connects downtown Stillwater  with western Wisconsin.
