River bridge segment placement nearly complete

Sept. 28, 2016

STILLWATER, Minn. – Crews completed installing the stay cables at Pier 10 on Friday, Sept. 23. Stay cable installation is now complete at all five river piers.

A total of eight stay cables are anchored within each pier tower, each connecting to a stay segment on the bridge deck. Stay cables help support the load, or weight, on the bridge and are necessary to support 600-foot spans between the river piers.

Other St. Croix Crossing bridge construction highlights include:

  • The final barge loaded with river bridge segments left the Grey Cloud Island casting yard and arrived on the project site Tuesday, Sept. 27
  • Crews anticipate placing the final river bridge segments the week of Oct. 3
  • Crews continue to work on the overlooks at Piers 8 and 10. Overlook construction will begin at Pier 12 in mid-October.
