Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - The sunshine may we welcomed by many Northlanders, but Duluth officials are warning residents about the dangers of falling ice from the Aerial Lift Bridge as a result of the warmer temperatures.

City officials say accumulated ice on the lift bridge is starting to loosen, and fall onto the walkways and roads.

They urge motorists and pedestrians to use caution on and around the bridge.

The east walkway of the Aerial Lift Bridge is closed to pedestrian traffic, and will remain so until the city feels it’s safe to re-open.
