City officials in Stillwater, Minn., say they may have to temporarily close the lift bridge which connects that city with western Wisconsin, because of flooding on the St. Croix River. The city has erected a temporary dike to hold back the water from the St. Croix, which is expected to crest at Stillwater later in the week -- about three feet below the top of the levees.
If the bridge were closed, it would be bad news for the many commuters who use it to drive from western Wisconsin into Minnesota every day.
