Lake Mallalieu bridge

The current Lake Mallalieu bridge was built in 1987 on the same spot as the 1930s bridge. Contractors completed half of the new bridge first, then dismantled the old bridge before completing the other half. file photo

Power has been restored, and the Lake Mallalieu Bridge connecting Hudson and North Hudson in St. Croix County has been reopened Friday, Sept. 17.

Storms that hit west-central Wisconsin knocked power out in the area, including the power operating temporary traffic signals controlling a single lane of traffic from Division Street in Hudson over the bridge to South Street in North Hudson.

That single lane, including the bridge, will remain open as long as the power remains on.

This morning the Wisconsin Department of Transportation announced that the Lake Mallalieu Bridge in St. Croix County was closed for the safety of motorists until power is restored.

Motorists needing to cross the bridge in the event of another outage should follow the Wisconsin Highway 35 detour that uses Interstate 94, Minnesota Trunk Highways 95 and 36 and Wisconsin 64.
