Keep Hwy 8 a Two-Way Bridge During Construction!

This petition made change with 365 supporters!

To those who live, work or travel regularly between Taylors Falls and St. Croix Falls, WISDOT is going to be doing bridge repair beginning April 2012 and continuing through to the end of July. WISDOT is considering a single lane across the bridge and this lane would only allow traffic to travel east. To go west, you would need to detour to Osceola.

What do we need to do?
Sign this petition to WISDOT asking that they offer a better solution than a one-way lane for our closely tied communities. It is our recommendation that they create an option that will somehow allow car traffic two-way access across the bridge.

Why is this important?
The westerly detour option will have a significant impact on our local small businesses, and for those who work in both communities. Also, a half hour detour, especially with the escalating gas prices projected to increase through the summer, is an additional economic burden for our residents.

Update 3/8/2012 WisDOT is considering having two lane traffic for phase 2 that starts May 29 until the end of the project July 20 (for Wannigan weekend). Construction is due to start in the next 2-3 weeks, so this petition will end soon. WisDOT will be forwarding me weekly updates. If you would like to kept informed you can send your email request to
