Bridge replica to be displayed

The City of Houghton is getting another bridge.

City Manager Scott MacInnis said the Lake Linden Historical Society is donating a replica of the Portage Lift Bridge to the city. The model is three feet wide, ten feet long, and six feet tall and is said to be in nice shape.

The bridge will be picked up today and taken to Dee Arena to be examined. The Council is considering putting the replica on display in the window at City Hall.
