Limited winter lift

The lift portion of the Stillwater bridge sees limited activity during the winter months as snowmobiles can easily glide underneath on the ice covered St. Croix river. This bridge sees 18,000 cars and trucks a day and will be replaced by a new four laner called the St Croix Crossing, basically extending Highway 36 into Wisconsin. That project will start this year and will take three years to complete. Once the new bridge is in place the Stillwater bridge will be limited to foot and bicycle traffic only. A nice retirement for this historic 80 year old.

    This brings back fond memories of when John, Jennifer and I lived in Stillwater. Pretty nice. Marilyn
