The Minnesota Department of Transportation and the Minnesota State Patrol will close both directions of the Stillwater Lift Bridge spanning the St. Croix River at 9 a.m. Friday, April 8, due to high water.

Officials will continue to monitor the river's rise, and the bridge may close sooner than 9 a.m. April 8 if conditions warrant.

Until further notice the roadway will be closed between downtown Stillwater and Houlton, Wis.
