Wisconsin and Minnesota announce management team for new bridge

STILLWATER - The Wisconsin and Minnesota transportation departments will announce a management team today for the building of a new bridge over the Saint Croix River near Hudson.

The bridge had been debated and delayed for about a half-century. But that was before the U.S. House voted earlier this month to exempt the project from the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, thus allowing its construction. President Obama is expected to sign the bill that both houses approved.

Both Wisconsin and Minnesota will pay for the new bridge. The total cost is expected to be around $620-million.
