Dangerous ice conditions on the St. Croix River near Stillwater
A tug boat is continuously breaking ice near the bridge piers to allow construction crews to work on the new river crossing. Crews are breaking ice across the river from the Minnesota shoreline to the Wisconsin shoreline. They plan to regularly break ice on the river throughout winter 2014-15. This causes thin, irregular and dangerous ice conditions between Stillwater and Bayport. For your safety, use extreme caution, heed all warning signs and stay away from the construction area. Not sure what "breaking ice" means? Check out this cool video, courtesy of one of our project inspectors:
Thank you in advance of staying clear of St. Croix Crossing construction zones. This season will be very busy with hundreds of crew members, vehicles and equipment navigating small construction sites. If you would like to safely view project progress, some great vantage points include the Scenic Overlook off of Lookout Trail or checking out the webcam.
