Approach work makes way for St. Croix Crossing bridge



ST. PAUL, Minn. — The Minnesota Department of Transportation named local contractor, C.S. McCrossan as the apparent low bid contractor to lead the reconstruction and realignment of Minnesota Hwy 36, which is the first phase of the St. Croix Crossing project.


“We want to thank the cities, counties and all stakeholders who were instrumental in the success of the project development phase of the St. Croix Crossing. As we enter the implementation phase and look forward to construction beginning on Hwy 36 in early spring, we will continue to work together to bring the project to fruition” said Jon Chiglo, St. Croix Crossing Project Director.


Along with reconstructing and realigning Minnesota Hwy 36 and Hwy 95, the project includes:


The Minnesota Hwy 36 project will begin in early spring and conclude in fall, 2014.


MnDOT and WisDOT will be hosting St. Croix Crossing open houses in early spring and scheduling other opportunities for residents and businesses to engage with project personnel. In addition, beginning in April, the St. Croix Crossing project offices, located at 1862 Greeley St. in Stillwater will have extended office hours to answer resident’s questions regarding the St. Croix Crossing.


Along with the reconstruction of Minnesota Hwy 36, the St. Croix Crossing project includes a four-lane river bridge, a roadway approach on the Wisconsin side of the river, historic and environmental mitigation, and extensive trail facilities, including converting the Stillwater Lift Bridge to a bike and pedestrian facility. These will be covered by separate contracts.
