Twin Ports drivers - rejoice!  All of the lanes of the Blatnik Bridge will reopen to traffic tomorrow morning - Friday, October 7 - three weeks ahead of schedule!  The only caveat:  They won't reopen until 9:00 AM - after the morning drive-time.

The bridge has been under repair work since the end of August and originally the work was expected to last until the end of October.  Weather-cooperation allowed MNDOT crews to maintain an accelerated schedule.
