After Cable Snap, Stillwater Lift Bridge Could Be In Down Position For Week

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Stillwater Lift Bridge has been closed after a cable snapped Sunday evening, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

MnDOT spokesman Kent Barnard says the cable snapped at around 8 p.m. Now, the bridge is in down position and closed to traffic for boats 6-feet tall or higher.

Once a replacement cable arrives, it may take a week to install, weather permitting.
