Duluth-10, September, 2008
The aerial lift bridge is one of the curiosities for visitors to Duluth.The lower level, is used for regular traffic & pedestrians, and the top level rises up to let boats come in & out of the harbor.
We had witnessed this twice as cousin Pat & other drivers were stopped. The barriers go down,the bells ring and you watch as the bridge "splits" it two to let boats through.
The port is a busy center for boats bringing out taconite( a rock that contains iron),coal or wheat.
