On this the 83rd birthday of the Stillwater Lift Bridge (which will reopen to traffic tomorrow, by the way), we pause to note that its replacement is starting to look like a bridge.
The St. Croix Crossing Facebook page posted updated pictures today, the most significant of which shows the prep work for the crossbeam, which will eventually become the highway.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
