A quick maintenance project will close at least one of the Superior-bound lanes this week in order to accomodate work crews from the MInnesota Department of Transportation.  The work involved will require the closure of one Superior-bound lane during the daytime hours of 9:00 AM to 2:30 PM; work will be performed during the daytime hours in order to reduce the effect the project will have on morning and afternoon-commutes.

In addition to the lane closure,  the Blatnik Bridge will also see weight and width restrictions while the maintenance project is being performed.

According to the timeline offered by MNDOT, the work should be finished by the end of this week however weather may alter those plans.
