Ribbon-cutting for new St. Croix River bridge set for Aug. 2 – Twin Cities – Minnesota News

The ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new St. Croix River bridge will be at 10 a.m. Aug. 2, but Minnesota Department of Transportation officials aren’t sure when the bridge will open to traffic.

MnDOT spokesman Kevin Walker said Wednesday that the bridge will likely be ready for vehicles within a few days of the ribbon cutting. “It could be that night. It could be the following morning,” he said. “There is no definite timeframe at this time.”

The ceremony will take place on the eastbound Minnesota 36 approach ramp spanning Minnesota 95 in Oak Park Heights. Dignitaries including Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Gov. Mark Daytion and Wisconsin Sen. Ron Kind and Gov. Scott Walker are expected to attend.
