Motorists that use southbound Highway 61 into Duluth via London Road will have to use an alternate route or detour starting Wednesday August 8th.

MnDOT is alerting motorists that flood-related culvert work will start on that section of road - a project that is expected to last into late August.


Motorists on the southbound Highway 61 expressway will be detoured onto Superior Street to 54th Avenue East and then back onto Highway 61/London Road.

Motorists traveling north on Highway 61/London Road will not be detoured, however they will encounter a few traffic shifts within the construction area.
