Boat traffic on the St. Croix River blocked this morning

Boat traffic on the Saint Croix River is being blocked this morning, until a broken cable can be fixed on the Stillwater Lift Bridge between Houlton Wisconsin and Stillwater Minnesota. D-O-T officials in the Gopher State said the cable snapped around eight last night, while the bridge was being lowered. The bridge is open to vehicle traffic this morning, for northwest Wisconsin commuters who use it to head to their jobs in Minnesota's Twin Cities area. Repairs are planned for this morning. Officials have not said what caused the snap, or exactly when the bridge could re-open.
