St. Croix Crossing – Wisconsin Loop Trail Project
St. Joseph and Houlton, St. Croix County
The St. Croix Crossing Bike/Pedestrian Loop Trail (Loop Trail) is part of the environmental mitigation package for the St. Croix Crossing project. This final phase of the project will include construction of the trail from the historic Stillwater Lift Bridge up old WIS 64, through portions of Houlton, past the Houlton Elementary School, and continue along new WIS 64 to the new river bridge. The Loop Trail is paved from the Main Trailhead parking lot to the the new river bridge, but construction activities in that segment of the Loop Trail are not yet complete. The park and ride Main Trailhead parking lot, pedestrian underpass, and their connecting trails are paved and ready for use. The project includes:
- Construction of two trailhead parking areas; one will be located at the top of Houlton Hill and the second will be located across the street from Houlton Elementary School (main trailhead).
- Addition of amenities at the main trailhead site, including a restroom building with flush toilets, drinking fountains, picnic shelter, picnic tables, benches and interpretive panels.
- Installation of rain gardens and other landscaping features
- Construction of a park and ride lot
- Pedestrian and bike path
