Climber Shuts Down Traffic On Duluth's Aerial Lift Bridge

DULUTH, Minn. (WCCO) -- Duluth police say traffic was closed on the iconic Aerial Lift Bridge for part of Thursday evening after someone scaled it.

In since-deleted tweets, the police department said officers and firefighters were at the scene "communicating with an individual who climbed to the top" of the bridge.
