Groundwork begins on St. Croix Crossing project
Crews will be hauling materials to the area adjacent to the Beach Road ramp off eastbound Highway 36 in Oak Park Heights beginning this week.
Piles of dirt will be visible to the south of Highway 36 while the area is prepared for future Beach Road Bridge construction.
The piles of dirt, called surcharge, will be monitored throughout the winter to measure the weight-bearing ability of soils beneath the piles, providing information for future construction on the site.
