Granary move closes bridge

UPDATE: The granary is now being prepared for its placement on the west side in a temporary spot while discussion on a final resting place is decided.




The encore of a once-in-a-lifetime event is forcing traffic through Sturgeon Bay to the Michigan Street Bridge and the Bayview Bridge Monday morning.


The Teweles and Brandeis grain elevator began its trek across the Maple/Oregon Street Bridge just after 5:30 a.m. with crews from DeVooght House Lifters and members of the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society assisting. 


The Maple/Oregon Street Bridge will be closed for much of the morning as the granary moves across the bridge to a temporary pad on the city's west side. 


We will have updates throughout the day posted on and our social media channels.
