Stillwater Lift Bridge over St. Croix River together again

As part of heavy maintenance, while the lifting span of the bridge was worked on in the down position, a span to the east (towards Wisconsin, e.g. on the left) had been removed to accommodate boat traffic. The bridge span, second to the left of the eastern lift tower (e.g. the gray one) had been removed in July and put back in place on Monday, November 19, 2018. Now the bridge is back together again, granted heavy maintenance will continue into early summer 2019.
