Next steps for the project include the development of the bridge design and construction criteria used for the basis of the 2013 construction contract to build the St Croix River Crossing. To accomplish this, the project team will be performing technical studies to analyze the bridge depicted in the Visual Quality Manual, examining the constructibility of the structure and developing detailed construction cost estimates. Results of these studies will be shared at the open houses.
