"We want to thank the cities, counties and all stakeholders who were instrumental in the success of the project development phase of the St. Croix Crossing. As we enter the implementation phase and look forward to construction beginning on Hwy. 36 in spring, we will continue to work together to bring the project to fruition," said Jon Chiglo, St. Croix Crossing Project Director.
Along with reconstructing and realigning Minnesota highways 36 and 95, the project includes:
The Minnesota Hwy. 36 project will begin in early spring and conclude in fall of 2014.
MnDOT and WisDOT will be hosting St. Croix Crossing open houses in early spring and scheduling other opportunities for residents and businesses to engage with project personnel. In addition, beginning in April, the St. Croix Crossing project offices, located at 1862 Greeley St. in Stillwater, will have extended office hours to answer residents' questions regarding the St. Croix Crossing.
Along with the reconstruction of Minnesota Hwy. 36, the St. Croix Crossing project includes a four-lane river bridge, a roadway approach on the Wisconsin side of the river, historic and environmental mitigation, and extensive trail facilities, including converting the Stillwater lift bridge to a bike and pedestrian facility. These will be covered by separate contracts.
