Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge Needs New Operator
DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — Duluth has a job for someone who's not afraid of heights — the city's landmark Aerial Lift Bridge needs a new operator.
Bridge supervisor Dave Campbell says bridge job openings don't come up often. He says there are only a few operators, and they usually stick around.
He cautions there's a lot of stress with the job, especially in the summer when lots of people and cars cross, and lots of boats pass underneath.
But it comes with great views. Campbell says there's nothing like watching a freighter come in when Lake Superior is full of fog and it suddenly appears.
The City of Duluth website is accepting applications through Monday before midnight. Campbell says a background in mechanical or electrical maintenance will give applicants a lift.
