It just got harder to get across the St. Croix (kroy) River between Minnesota and Wisconsin.

The Stillwater lift bridge has closed for a five million dollar repair project.

The bridge is scheduled to reopen October 31st. Boat traffic won't be affected.

Motorists should take a 15-mile detour through Hudson, Wisconsin, and across the river on Interstate 94.

The aging bridge is used by an estimated 16-thousand motorists every day.
