Novel idea to reduce Stillwater lift bridge traffic jams: Don't lift the bridge so often!
If theres one thing upon which all sides on the Stillwater bridge controversy agree, its that raising the historic lift bridge is the primary cause of traffic tie-ups in downtown Stillwater. Yet everyone has been so focused on doing an end-run of the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act with a four-lane freeway bridge across the river that the simplest of solutionsreducing the absurd frequency of the lifts on the Stillwater bridgehas not even been considered in at least a decade.
