Here's what you see instead of the new St. Croix Crossing bridge on Apple Maps

Maps are hard.

Maps are hard. Apple knows this – when it rolled out Apple Maps in 2012, the new feature was plagued with screw-ups

And there's a big omission right now. The brand new St. Croix Crossing, connecting Minnesota to Wisconsin, opened on Aug. 2. And it still doesn't exist on Apple Maps.

As of Thursday morning it still shows ... nothing there. It's just the river.

Google Maps took a few days, but it's good now

Google Maps has it figured out now, though it wasn't immediate. 

Four days ago one Reddit user wrote: "Anytime Google Maps wants to update traffic information on the newly opened St. Croix Bridge near Stillwater, MN, that would be great. Thanks!"

And here it is as of Thursday morning:

You can't, however, go over the new bridge in Google Street View. Guess that Google car hasn't had a chance to drive across it yet.

How to report bad info on Maps

With both apps, you can tell Google or Apple if something is wrong.

In Google Maps, go to the "Send Feedback" option in the menu. From there you can report a missing road (or in this case bridge), and suggest other corrections.

In Apple Maps, go to the "Report an Issue" option in the menu. It lets you sort between incorrect labeling, transit issues or adding a place, but doesn't actually offer a "Hey, there's an entire route missing" choice. 

So you have to submit it via the "Other issue" option.
