On Monday afternoon, I had the opportunity to tour the new bridge over the St. Croix. It is an impressive structure that is designed for 100 years. It is about a mile long, about a hundred feet wide, and slightly over 100 feet over the water. The bridge connects Oak Park Heights, Minnesota with St. Joseph, Wisconsin
The bridge should open later this summer. For more information, see the website: www.mndot.gov/stcroixcrossing
The Stillwater Lift Bridge will be converted to bicycle/pedestrian use only.
