Stillwater bridge back open to traffic
Woodbury Minnesota 8420 City Centre Drive 55125

Less than a week after it was closed, the Stillwater bridge is open to traffic again.

As flood waters receded, the lift bridge was reopened late Friday night. Traffic was free to move over the span on Saturday.

The bridge had closed at 10 a.m. Tuesday as waters along the St. Croix River rose. It eventually crested at 85.9 feet -- well below the 87.0 flood stage.

Motorists will have to deal with another closure in the coming week. To complete some maintenance on the bridge, the Minnesota Department of Transportation will close the bridge from 10 a.m. April 5 to 5 a.m. April 6.
