More closures ahead for Portage Lake Lift Bridge

HOUGHTON/HANCOCK — Late night and early morning commuters in the Copper Country should prepare for more Lift Bridge closings next week.

The bridge is scheduled for closure Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 2 to 4 a.m.

This round of renovation will see some of the balance chains lowered for maintenance.

Further closures down the road are planned and will be announced at a later date.

The Yooper Loop on the Houghton side of the bridge will remain closed this weekend, despite Winter Carnival traffic.
