Grand opening celebration finally happening for lift bridge loop trail
Friday, August 06, 2021
STILLWATER — Even though the Lift Bridge loop trail has been open for a year, its grand opening has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The community will finally celebrate the newly constructed loop trail system that connects the historic Lift Bridge with the St. Croix River Crossing Bridge, beginning with a long-overdue ribbon-cutting at the west end of the Stillwater Lift Bridge at 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 14.
According to the Greater Stillwater Chamber of Commerce, dignitaries from both the state of Minnesota and Wisconsin will be at the ribbon-cutting to celebrate the reopening of the Lift Bridge and shared loop trail between two states, two historic bridges and the beautiful St. Croix River. The official ribbon-cutting ceremony is hosted by the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
