Heads up if you drive the Grand Avenue/Highway 23 route from Gary-New Duluth to West Duluth as part of your daily drive: The second (and final) year of work on the major rehabilitation of the roadway will resume on Monday, April 11.
The calendar may say "spring" - but Mother Nature knows differently; Northlanders probably should, too. The Clean Sweep event that was scheduled in downtown Duluth on Wednesday, April 6 has been temporarily postponed for a later date.
It should be no surprise that a project that's already been billed as one of Minnesota's biggest highway jobs is expected to overrun its projected budget. As the move and bridgework inches towards its November 2017 completion date, I have the feeling that we'll see the need for additional funds to cover oversights.
There are jobs out there - if you make the right connections! One of those places you can network is at the 7th annual Northland Job Fair - which happens Tuesday, April 5 at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center (DECC).
"The gas pedal is on the right!" On occasion my route takes me over the Oliver Bridge and I find myself on Wisconsin Highway 105. It's actually a nice drive and a refreshing change of pace from crossing the St. Louis River via the Blatnik or Bong Bridges.
Northlander's know that the growing season here is short. Smart gardeners maximize every resource to make sure that their fall harvest is a bountiful one! A special event put on by the St. Louis County Extension office is one of those educational opportunities that you won't want to miss.
You've no doubt seen them while driving in the Twin Cites metro area - those noise barrier walls that envelope the freeway, protecting the surrounding neighborhoods from the sound that emanates from the heavy traffic. Now those same noise barriers could start to show up in communities throughout the state of Minnesota.
