WESTERN WISCONSIN ROUNDUP: New St. Croix River bridge to be built with local labor and materials
The new Saint Croix River bridge near Hudson will be built primarily with local labor and materials. Over 80-million dollars are expected to be given to sub-contractors that include J-and-L Steel-and-Electrical Services of Hudson. They'll get 65-million dollars -- their largest contract ever -- to provide all the steel and electrical work for the new four-lane bridge. Cemstone, a Twin Cities company with facilities in Wisconsin, will provide much of the concrete for the project.
