Bridge backers gaining optimism
It's been close before.
Back in the 1990s, the proposed St. Croix River Crossing project was just 30 days from being let for bids. But legal challenges, like obstacles that stopped the bridge several times before, again put the proposal on the shelf.
Since then, supporters of the idea of a new span between Stillwater, and Houlton have been working methodically to overcome the final roadblocks to construction.
It appears that day may come very soon.
