Twin Ports residents who use the Blatnik Bridge should be aware that a road construction project gets underway on Monday, May 13th.

The southbound/Superior-bound, right lane on the Interstate 535/Blatnik Bridge, will close to traffic for several weeks beginning Monday, May 13. One southbound lane will remain open.


Motorists may also encounter temporary, northbound/Duluth-bound single-lane closures between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. the week of May 13.

The work is part of a larger project:  a two-year rehabilitation job that began in May 2012.  Paint and new lighting are part of the plans.

The project is scheduled for completion in October 2013.
