MnDOT will host an official “groundbreaking ” for the St. Croix River Crossing Project on Tuesday, May 28 at Lowell Park in downtown Stillwater.
The event—from 2:30-3:30 p.m.—is open to the public and will feature remarks from elected officials, along with a ceremonial groundbreaking.
Roadwork is also expected to begin next week on Highway 36 from Highway 120 in North St. Paul through Lake Elmo to just east of Washington Avenue in Oak Park Heights.
Construction along this 8-mile stretch of Highway 36 begins May 29, weather permitting.
The roadwork is part of the St. Croix River Crossing Project, and includes minor grading and resurfacing on the road, revising signal timings and adding traffic-management signs, according to MnDOT.
