Officials with the City of Duluth issued a cautionary message to everyone that uses the Aerial Lift Bridge regarding falling snow and ice. The press release from city officials says that both pedestrians and drivers that travel across the lift bridge over the next several days should use extra caution, as the warmer weather has allowed ice and snow on the bridge to start melting and falling off upper portions of the structure.

Bridge operators have reported seeing falling ice and snow that could cause damage or injury Thursday, and expect this to continue at least into the weekend as warm weather remains in the forecast and more snow and ice remain on the bridge.
