Stretching over the blue river water, the St. Croix River Crossing is beginning to resemble a bridge. Construction on the 5,000-foot project has ramped up this season with five sections of bridge now spread out in the waters between Oak Park Heights in Minnesota and the town of St. Joseph in Wisconsin. The project broke ground in 2013, but experienced delays that pushed the completion date back to fall of 2017. Construction Manager Terry Zoller said he is more confident in the progress of the project now.
