Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) -- Duluth's Aerial Lift Bridge will be closed to vessel traffic from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. on October 31.

The reason for the closure is to allow workers to replace an electrical switching assembly located on the bridge.

The bridge is fully operational. The electrical switch replacement is being installed to ensure operability of the backup diesel generator in case of loss of normal power.

During the replacement process, normal power must be secured to guarantee the safety of electrical personnel replacing the switch.
