The Stillwater Lift Bridge opened Friday afternoon, thanks to favorable weather conditions this week.
The Stillwater Lift Bridge rehabilitation project began July 9. The bridge itself has been closed to traffic since Sept. 10.
Due to nice weather, 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.
