A one-day exploration project will impact traffic in downtown Duluth on Tuesday, Septmeber 29.  The Minnesota Department of Transportation is alerting the public that they will have work crews on Michigan Street to perform a drilling exploration project.  The work is tied to general road work in downtown Duluth.

According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation, the main traffic impacts will be in the east bound lane, west of Mesaba Avenue during the daylight hours.  In order to safely perform the drilling operation, MNDOT will have temporary traffic controls set up to direct drivers as they make their way through the work site.

The informational timeline released by the Minnesota Department of Transportation details that they believe that the work will be completed by the end of the day.  However - similar to any outdoor road construction project - a variety of factors could potentially delay the work.

Even as the weather starts to turn, there are still plenty of road construction projects underway across the State of Minnesota.  For complete, up-to-date-information about all of them, check out the online portal that the Minnesota Department of Transportation has set up:  511mn.com.
