Duluth in Saint Louis County, Minnesota — The American Midwest (Upper Plains)
Illumination History of the Aerial Lift Bridge
The present dramatic lighting, first seen on July 4, 1987, is made possible through a generous gift from the Rotary Club of Duluth, Club # 25. It symbolizes the warm welcome extended by Duluth citizens to ships and visitors from around the world.
Both projects were coordinated by the City of Duluth, which owns and operates the Bridge.
