The St. Croix Crossing, the once-controversial bridge project connecting Oak Park Heights, Minnesota, to Wisconsin across the St. Croix River, is still a couple of years away from opening.

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.
