Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Maintenance on the Portage Lake Lift Bridge between Houghton and Hancock in the Keweenaw Peninsula is continuing.

New lift cables are being installed on the bridge this week, so that means multiple 20-minute closures are planned all week long.

The closures will happen between 7:00 at night and 6:00 in the morning.

The Michigan Department of Transportation advises that the closures will likely result in delays for motorists but will not affect snowmobile traffic on the lower bridge deck.
