St. Croix Bridge, Minnesota and Wisconsin
Mountain Pacific, Inc., is a member of the Lunda-Ames Joint Venture team constructing the new $600 million crossing of the St.Croix River from Minnesota to Wisconsin. This resident-driven project to replace the Stillwater Lift Bridge began in 2013 and is expected to be completed by 2016. It not only includes a vehicular crossing, but also the Loop Trail, providing for bicycle and pedestrian connectivity with regional and local trail systems. MPI’s work involves design of temporary structures, including falsework, bridge decks, forming systems, pier caps and other specialty construction elements.
Mountain Pacific, Inc., designed several unique and innovative construction methods to implement construction in the most efficient and safe manner. These included 250-kip falsework swivel heads and specialized overhead form design for cast-in-place segmental structures.
