The new bridge St Croix Crossing is now open making access to WI much quicker for many people. The bridge is massive and quite the experience to cross. I have watched it from my back yard for the past 5 years as they dug up the old neighborhood and such. As many of you know it has been a long time coming for this area with the old bridge being built in 1931 and serving until 2017. There had been talk of a new bridge since the 1950's.
The Stillwater bridge will become a trail for pedestrians and bicycles only and should open back up in 2019. until then there is no one allowed on the bridge. It is unclear if the trail will be allowed to be used after dark once it is open. There is no official talk as far as what will be allowed as far as fishing. I will be in contact with those in the decisions making positions about allowing fishing after dark. There are so few public shore fishing spots that every area is important to fight for.
Again, nobody is allowed to be on the bridge until they are done with the construction of the bike trail.
