The first pair of concrete segments that will eventually form the deck of the St. Croix River Crossing will arrive at the construction site on Friday.
The 170-ton concrete segments, along with a lifter crane that will be used to place them on top of Pier 8, will travel 33 miles by barge from Grey Cloud Island to the bridge construction site on Friday, according to MnDOT. The trip will take about seven hours.
About 650 pre-cast segments will make up the driving surface of the new river crossing. The majority of segments will be placed in 2015.
