That summer road project that has northbound lane restrictions along Mesaba Avenue will see some changes for the next few weeks.  In order to accommodate the progression of the work involved, the Minnesota Department of Transportation is making temporary traffic control changes starting today (June 4) and running through June 18.

Here are the details:

  • All northbound lanes from the intersection of 3rd Street through the intersection of Central Entrance will now be open.
  • Left turns will not be allowed at West 4th Street, West 5th Street, West 7th Street, North Lake Avenue, and East 9th Street.
  • The right southbound lane will be closed from Central Entrance to 3rd Street.
  • Right turns will not be allowed at West 4th Street, West 5th Street, West 7th Street, Lake Avenue, and East 9th Street.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation reminds drivers that the nothbound lane closues will resume once again on Monday, June 18.  Work on Mesaba Avenue is expected to last well into the fall of 2018.
