St. Croix Crossing project lifts Hwy 95 traffic switch

Oct. 22, 2015

STILLWATER, Minn. – The St. Croix Crossing project has lifted the traffic switch at the Highway 36/95 interchange in Oak Park Heights, Minn. Traffic is now single-lane in each direction using both the Highway 95 northbound and southbound lanes.

Motorists traveling northbound will have a through lane and a dedicated left turn lane at the intersection, while those traveling southbound will have a through lane and a dedicated right turn lane at the intersection.

The traffic configuration will remain this way through fall 2015. There will be no traffic shifts in winter 2015-16.

The new St. Croix Crossing bridge will open to traffic in 2017. When the St. Croix Crossing project is finished, motorists will have smoother highway pavement surfaces, improved flow at intersections, an improved frontage road system—including safer access—and a new river crossing between Minnesota and Wisconsin. All of this will occur while maintaining or restoring the area’s cultural, historic and environmental resources.
