Prep work starts for Stillwater Bridge - really; Farm planting start is slowest in 30 years; more state news
After years of debate, work has finally begun on a new four-lane bridge from the Hudson area into Minnesota.
Minnesota's Department of Transportation says dock walls are being built to accommodate the construction equipment that will help install the foundations for the new bridge over the St. Croix River.
Steel panels are also being installed to provide docking facilities for barges. The initial work is being done on the Minnesota side of the river.
