Construction continues on the new St. Croix River bridge
In spite of the cold weather, construction continues on the new Saint Croix River bridge near Hudson. Tugboats have moved a growing amount of ice from the river this week, so crews from the Sauk County firm of Edward Kraemer-and-Sons can finish installing the pier foundations for the new four-lane bridge. They're working 24-7, and they expect to be done by Christmas. Kraemer will get a one-point-four million dollar incentive bonus if it finishes by January 20th.
