Why should MN pay 50% for a "bridge to no where" for Wisconsin? WI residents are the only ones going to be using it.

THIS IS A MONEY SHAKE DOWN FOR WESTERN WISCONSIN!

Wisconsin reimburses us quite a bit. We still have a financial agreement with the Wisc Dept of Revenue that covers Badger commuters making income in MN. And in-state public university tuition agreements still exist between us.

How many Minnesotans cross to tube at the Apple River or buy cheaper liquor ... or whatever?

Most of the folks who now live in St Croix and Pierce counties are from StP and Mpls. Are we not supposed to visit our relatives and friends safely?

Thousands cross both ways.

minnesotans use that bridge JUST AS OFTEN as wisconsinites. It's only right that its 50-50. I don't think you have ever spent time in Stillwater. You have no idea. Moron.

And Bridge to nowhere? really? That bridge takes people to Hudson, Somerset, new Richmond, B&L Liquors.....MANY MANY other areas. It is absolutely NOT a bridge to Nowhere.

Mr. WRONG from Hastings should get out more. Sooner or later the lift bridge is going to get stuck in the up position. I believe they have long since quit making parts for it.
