Stillwater lift bridge now open
Stillwater Lift Bridge was scheduled to reopen by 5 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7.
The lift bridge has been closed to traffic since Sept. 10 as part of the Stillwater Lift Bridge Rehabilitation project. The project itself began July 9 and was expected to be complete by Dec. 14.
Due to favorable weather conditions over the last week, electrical crews were able to get the final portion of the project completed ahead of schedule.
The project focused on repairing steel connections, replacing and repairing mechanical and electrical components, repairing concrete surfaces, repairing floor beams, painting portions of the bridge and replacing guardrail, curb and gutter.
