Proposed St. Croix River Crossing gets important U.S. House approval

Email

The U.S. House of Representatives voted 339-80 on Thursday morning to exempt the proposed new St. Croix River Crossing project from the restrictions of the Federal Wild & Scenic Riverway Act.

The action paves the way for eventual construction of a new four-lane bridge over the St. Croix River at Stillwater, Minn. and Houlton, Wis. The new span will replace the 80-year-old Stillwater lift bridge, which has been deemed obsolete and functionally inadequate for years.
