As of two o'clock today, crews opened the Sorlie bridge. The bridge was closed for a week as the water reached its cresting point of 45.99 feet.

The water is receding and is currently at 45.06 feet. The bridge had to be inspected for damage before it could open again.

The two cities hope to reopen the Point bridge sometime on Monday.
