Stillwater Bridge Back To Business Wednesday

STILLWATER, Minn. (WCCO) — Flooding concerns have eased enough that the Stillwater Lift Bridge will go back to its normal summer schedule for marine traffic at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, officials said Tuesday.

The bridge had been closed weeks because of spring flooding concerns with the St. Croix River. The bridge serves as the main corridor for traffic flow from Minnesota to Wisconsin over the river.

The bridge schedule will remain in effect, weather depending, until Oct. 15. For complete information and a schedule of the Stillwater Lift Bridge, click here.

    It’s a Death Trap people! As long as you know the risks. I sure hope school buses with children dont use it. This bridge is waiting to claim lives. Be careful……

    The bridge has been open for over a week, its now opening to boat traffic lol, we’re all impressed you watched inspection america, thus making you an expert. Cross it if you need to you have a higher chance of being killed in a plane crash then a bridge collapsing

    Lifting the bridge for boat traffic what a waste of tax payer dollars! I say make it a toll bridge for boat traffic, if you can afford a boat you can afford to pay a toll. The traffic comes to a stand still for the boat loafers. What about the working people that are trying to get home to feed their children?
