Impacts on the Water (Ice)

  • All five pier foundations in the river are complete, but the site remains an active construction zone.
  • Crews will continue to regularly break ice from 100 feet north of the project to 2000-3000 feet south of the project.
  • Ice fishermen and snowmobilers must be aware of irregular ice and thin ice in this area.

Crews will continue to break ice near the bridge construction zone. Everyone participating in winter activities on the river should use extreme caution and stay away from the construction area.

Signage about the thin ice will be placed at six river access points as well as on the St. Croix River both north and south of the bridge foundations.

For your safety, please heed thin ice warnings.
