June 15, 2016

STILLWATER, Minn. – St. Croix Crossing bridge deck construction at Pier 9 near Minnesota land is complete. Crews placed the final pre-cast concrete segment in the bridge deck construction sequence on June 10.

Meanwhile, bridge deck construction continues at Piers 8, 10, 11 and 12 on the St. Croix River and at Span 14, which stretches from Pier 13 to the east abutment on the Wisconsin bluff.

The contractor anticipates completing stay cable installation at Pier 8—closest to Minnesota land—by the end of June. Bridge deck construction at this pier location is anticipated to be complete by mid-July.

Other St. Croix Crossing bridge construction highlights are:

  • Crews will have placed up to the ninth eastbound and westbound segments in the bridge deck construction sequence at both Piers 10 and 11 by the end of the week of June 13
  • Crews will have placed up to the 14th eastbound and westbound segments in the bridge deck construction sequence at Pier 12, closest to Wisconsin land, by the end of the week of June 13
  • Crews placed 10 segments in the bridge deck construction sequence at Span 14 the week of June 6. Span 14 bridge deck construction is ongoing through the fall.

Minnesota approach construction highlights

Construction crews have connected the approach span between Piers 2 and 3 that make up the westbound off-ramp from the river bridge to Highway 95 in Minnesota.

Crews will complete segment placement at Pier 3 for the westbound Highway 36 approach bridge this week. The eastbound span at this pier location was completed in early June.
