The Stillwater Lift Bridge opened to traffic at approximately 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 2.

The historic lift bridge between Stillwater and Houlton, Wis., was struck by a lumber delivery truck heading westbound into Minnesota in mid-July. The damage caused by the truck required replacement of certain parts of the bridge and a steel straightening crew repaired affected areas.
