Thousands of Wisconsinites who work in Minnesota’s Twin Cities will have to find a new way to get to work this fall. The Stillwater lift bridge north of Hudson will be closed from September through December so workers can make almost $3.5 million worth of improvements.
Todd Clarkowski of the Minnesota Department of Transportation says the 80-year-old lift bridge will get a variety of new components, including electrical items. Also, guardrails and curbs and gutters will be replaced.
A Sauk County contractor, Edward Kraemer and Sons, submitted the winning bid for the project. An open house on the project was Thursday, June 21, at the Stillwater City Hall.
The lift bridge will be replaced later this decade by a new four-lane bridge a few miles to the south.
