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

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 from boats 6-feet tall or higher. Once a replacement cable arrives, it will take a week to install, weather permitting.
