See the new St. Croix Bridge by boat this summer


Bridge fanatics will soon have another way to get a closer look at what’s up with the new St. Croix bridge under construction between Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Paddleboat tours of the project are scheduled to begin May 31, KSTP reports, and will run on Saturdays and Wednesdays through Sept. 27.

MnDOT staff will be on board to answer questions. St. Croix Crossing project director Jon Chiglo told KSTP they set up the boat tours because there are no places on shore for the public to safely view the construction.

More about the tours

WCCO reports adult tickets will be $10. It’ll be $6 for children ages 4 to 12.

The new river crossing is expected to open to traffic by fall 2016.
