UPDATE: Lift bridge to close to vehicles this afternoon
The Stillwater Lift Bridge will close to vehicle traffic for a couple hours today, Wednesday, beginning at noon.
The closure became necessary after a cable snapped Sunday, June 16, at around 8 p.m. -- leaving the lift area of the bridge in the down position.
Since then boat passage along the St. Croix River has been limited. Vehicle traffic has been able to continue to use the span.
