Lift Bridge Announces New Champion

The Aerial Lift Bridge Committee announced a winner in the 100th Anniversary Aerial Lift Bridge centennial slogan. The winning slogan, "Get Bridged", by Ryan Vine and Diane Chaney of Duluth was chosen from thousands upon thousands of entries. Vine and Chaney's entry beat out several other top finalists for the spot. These finalists included such entries as: "Making Park Point Slighly Less Crappy", "Still Gettin' It Up After 100 Years" and "early 20th Century, Steel-Framed, Counterweighted, Cable Car Transfer Bridges 'R' Us". "This is probably the greatest day of my life," quoted Vine. "And, quite possibly, the greatest day in the life of Duluth."
