Charlevoix Lift Bridge Reopened After Getting Stuck in “Down” Position

The lift bridge along U.S. 31 in Charlevoix is back open to all traffic.

The bridge, which goes over the Round Lake Channel in downtown Charlevoix, was stuck in the “down” position Friday.

That meant vehicles could still drive over the bridge, but it couldn’t be raised to let boats go through the channel.

The Michigan Department of Transportation says the issue was fixed early Saturday morning.

Beaver Island Boat Company has an extra ferry departure from Charlevoix at 8 p.m. Saturday.
