Orange cone season is here and the Northland is on tap for multiple road projects this summer. As they gear up for the work ahead, officials with the Minnesota Department of Transportation are urging drivers to slow down and be alert in work zones.
With the road construction season starting up, here's a recently-passed law change that you'll want to be aware of: It is now illegal to use a cellular (or other wireless) phone while driving through a construction zone in Wisconsin.
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's a chance to smell and taste exciting and (maybe) exotic cuisine from around the world! On Saturday, April 2, students and faculty from the University of Wisconsin-Superior will hold their annual World Student Association Cooking Demonstration event.
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.
