Of course it is sadly destined to fail. It was built in 1931. Thanks to the twits in the Sierra club and their flunkees we still aren't closer to solving a major traffic problem. Ironically the new bridge would cause less pollution since 500 cars all idling for minutes is way worse for the enviroment. Scenic? Yes, keep the old bridge for bike and pedestrian traffic. Scenic though? Right next to a powerplant? What is scenic about that?

Raise the bridge to the top and create a resturant that could be reached with elevators.

I used to love crossing that bridge on a Sunday morning to go get beer! May as well give my tax money to Wisconsin seeing as how Minnesota doesn't want it!

So traffic is going to be down going past my house in Marine - BUT - so will my business in Stillwater because of the traffic jams.

Build that bridge already...or give Wisconsin to Mexico and build a wall.

That will help. NPM why don't you stand on 95 and turn anyone with a Wisconsin License plate away. That's what you want isn't it? Grow up man. Stop acting like a spoiled child. When people stop spending money in your town you will be singing a different tune. But what do you care. You probably don't have anyhting invested in it anyways.
