Stillwater Lift Bridge lift schedule

2018 Schedule

The U.S. Coast Guard has changed the Stillwater Lift Bridge lift schedule for the 2018 boating season. The schedule is in accordance with Coast Guard Regulations -- 33 CFR 117.667.

The lift bridge now will operate every half hour between 8 a.m. and 12 midnight seven days a week from approximately May 15 through Oct. 15. The new schedule was created following the results of a test deviation for the Stillwater Lift Bridge's lift schedule and public comment received during the 2017 boating season.

Daily

  • Every half hour between 8 a.m. and 12 midnight
  • Upon two hour notice between 12 midnight and 8 a.m.

    Note: Boaters must call MnDOT at 651-234-7110 a minimum of two hours in advance to schedule a bridge lift outside the regularly scheduled lifts.
