Highway 36 Stillwater Lift Bridge


The iconic Stillwater Lift Bridge in Stillwater, MN, was built in 1931 to replace a swing bridge dating to 1910. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989, this project was divided into five main components; structural steel repairs, concrete surface repairs of the existing piers, historic concrete repairs of the balustrade rail, mechanical lift equipment repairs and electrical system repairs. Kraemer transformed the lift bridge into a bicycle/pedestrian crossing that accommodates marine traffic.
