Spring flooding likely along St. Croix River
The Stillwater lift bridge could be under water again this spring.
The bridge, which handles about 19,000 cars per day across the St. Croix River, faces a 90 percent chance of closing, according to Minnesota emergency management officials.
"If we have rapid (snow) melt, look out," said Dan Luna of the National Weather Service's Twin Cities office.
The same is true, he added, if there is significant new snowfall or rainfall on frozen ground.
