Bridge Dispute NPR's David Schaper reports on the debate over a proposed bridge that would cross the St. Croix River between Minnesota and Wisconsin. It is part of the larger debate about the Bush administration's effort to streamline the environmental review process for highway projects. Many people living in and around Stillwater, Minnesota, want a new bridge to alleviate road congestion. Opponents say it will lead to sprawl, and ruin a federally protected river environment.
